At 1:02:23 Macer is arguing with Jennings about Graver's deliberately failing to build a case, noting that $9,000 has been deposited into the debt account every day for five years. Jennings says this is suspect but not illegal, and Macer tells him "the IRS might think it's illegal." In fact, the IRS does think this is illegal: while the limit for monitoring of transactions is $10,000, attempts to defeat this are termed "structuring" by the IRS, and have indeed resulted in successful prosecutions.

Hard to find a thriller like Sicario these days , watch it! My thought is that a good Thriller title is the hardest case you can go for as a movie maker .A good thriller has to keep you hooked and in tense for the whole movie ,worst case for most of the movie.Sicario manages to provide the right amount of thrill and action in a way it keeps you interested through all of the time.Sure it had its flaws and sometimes i was a little disappointed with the decision the writers made with this one but when i look at the whole picture its coming up as a very good film , i honestly couldn't stop watching and was a little sad when it was over. I must say though that this movie has a political opinions in it that you cant overlook and it can be a little con for some viewers. Overall , this movie is truly a gem to Hollywood industry right now , very well written and directed plus it has outstanding cast.
