Reply to Lev's Post: "Your employer should not include in the W2 box 1 tips that were not reported. Those that were reported shall be included"
This is not about tips reported because this is not about tips that I made. It's about tips other ppl received from me every shift I worked. For example, if I make $100 and it's all on credit cards
, the computer at work won't let me declare anything less, even though out of that $100 I have to tip out my bartender 1% of my sales
, and my busser 2%. Computer is not set up for me to enter those amounts, therefore 9 out of 10 I end up walking with less than I declare.
So again...that is money i have to declare and pay taxes
on, but it's money I DON'T HAVE, money I didn't leave work with.
Question is does my employer have the legal right to tell me they won't change my W2 after knowing all this? I'm talking about $4700 that I paid taxes on last year even though that $4700 is all money other ppl received from me.
