  • Declaring Tips

    Hello Guys,

    I work at Caribou Coffee and during our shifts we accept tips. At the end of the shift we take our tips home (obviously), however, do not declare them, but I was wondering if this will hinder me from becoming a police officer, my dream job.

    Thanks guys


    BE SAFE

      You are required by law to report your income for tax purposes. While the practice of not reporting tips is common, your tips are income, so failure to declare them is technically tax evasion. If you feel the weight of this crime will cause you potential problems in the hiring process then start reporting your tips. That said, I can't see alone would be a serious enough issue to prevent your employment at most agencies, and don't really know that it will come up except for a background question like "Can you think of any crime you have ever committed."

      Good luck.

        I am a waiter and we all know what we are "required" to claim but, when you try to get a car or buy a house, you dont make enough money. I would never have been approved for my home loan if I wasnt religous about how I claim, even though my sales are over 100k through November. In the end it hurts more for you to not claim, let alone the fact it is illegal, and tax evasion.

          You make over 100k as a waiter????????

But you can do that from behind a desk. In the end, you carry a gun and shield out into the field for the sole purpose of confronting the bad guys. The enemy. There is no other reason to be on the front lines." ~Nelson Demille

            When I worked for tips I just estimated them at the end of the year and declared them on my taxes.
