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

"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…"

"Can't you call yourself a contractor, report the income as such, and thereby have whatever taxes apply levied?  irs.gov would likely know."

"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. You're also not the first kid to do this. I'm surprised the thought even crossed your mind."

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

Outdoorsy/Nature Body Washes

I'm looking for a outdoorsy (think balsam fir, cedar, and juniper, etc) natural body wash or soap that isn't going to break the bank (<$10) and moisturizes skin. The issue that I have with many is that that they still smell chemically despite being advertised as "naturey" (see Old Spice Denali, for example).  Any suggestions?  Thanks.See More
