"TBH in your position I wouldn't worry about it (I know not the right legal answer). I'd watch out for it in the future."

"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…"

Declaring wages from an under the table job

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 probably around $50 cash a week (except during the summers, where I didn't work at the restaurant and volunteered elsewhere).Tax season is right here and I've realized that it was a stupid decision to take an under the table job.  I want to stay squeaky clean for my future job search, and even though…See More

"Yeah I read the replies on the original thread too. The advice seems pretty clear. Ok, so with that said, I have to ask, and get a little sentimental for a moment, and perhaps sound a little sensitive. How the F do I make the conscious decision to…"
