Will Banks get suspicious if i deposit 4,000 in cash every month?

So besides my day job (software engineer) which i have direct deposit linked to my bank.. I also like to perform private service on my off days , more specifically i fix people's software issues on their computers a lot of times it's complex stuff. Usually my clients pay me in cash for my service.  So i have opened a new bank account where I specifically have been depositing 4,000 in cash and so far had no issues.  But I am worried if my new bank decides to close my account because i constantly deposit it every single month and its all in cash. 

Should I instead deposit the cash to my main bank where i also have my direct deposit set up?   What should i do?

    I doubt it. Now 8000 one day and $3000 the next day, YES.

    And you have nothing to worry about unless you are a tax cheat.  They don't call the police. They file a form. And the treasury is looking for big money drug dealers and money launderers. You are too small.   I have deposited over 10k in cash several times and I never heard from anyone. Its MY money and I am not a tax cheat. My bank probably filed a report. So what?

    No, the bank is not required to notify the IRS unless your deposit is $10,000 or above.

    Report your additional  income and pay tax on it............ or continue to commit tax fraud and be taken to court

    You are reporting this income on your tax return, right?  No problem then.

    Doesn't matter as long as you pay taxes on it. If they get suspicious they call the law.

    If your bank gets suspicious, just tell them you're a prostitute
