I'm in my final semester at school and I've been working in a restaurant this past for a little extra cash so I can actually afford fresh food and maybe get to go out on weekends. I've been making…Continue
"He's not a waiter. He's a food service analyst.
The IRS does not have the best website. I put "payroll" into its search feature for individuals and got 0.
The problem with that route is that it's not the income taxes at…"
"Some people are just honest that way. Some people like to always claim the moral high ground. My parents had me declare income from a cash-paying baby-sitting job when I was 18 or 19, so I could tell all my own future baby-sitters, when I was in…"
"If it's under the table, the IRS doesn't know anything about it. You'd have quite literally nothing to gain by alerting them.

"Second ... isn't most anti-discrimination policy built 'for the 1 out of 100,000' (give or take)? It is explicitly for the protection of minorities -- the fewer the better. I have a hard time thinking special…"
"The 'policy' of not intentionally punishing the innocent is hardly "built for the 1 out of 100,000". It's a pretty fundamental policy of American jurisprudence. It's the basis of warrant law, search and…"
