IRS question about Form 8300 ...

No, you do not lose attorney client privilege. However, your attorney does have to report the receipt of cash to the government. He/she need not, and is not permitted, to inform anyone of the nature of your engagement or divulge information that falls within the attorney-client privilege.

The IRS will know that you gave Attorney X the reported funds, but nothing more than that.
