    the wait staff gets screwed. ONLY tip cash.

    This from someone who depends on tips for roughly half my income.

    Thank You!

      the wait staff has pissed me off. I really don't like the way the IRS screws wait staff on credit card tips. Statistically people paying by credit card leave larger tips, but the IRS insists on applying this rate to those who pay in cash. This means they are being taxed on more income than they truly receive. I put a line through the tip on the credit card bill. I figure this lowers the credit card tipping rate- hopefully brings it more in line with the overall tipping rate.

      Also tipping cash is an immediate payment they can take home that night instead of having to wait for payday.
