Those of you who order pizza delivered by a delivery person should read this. Some of the delivery persons income is derived from tips that people might give them. But if you want to give the delivery person a tip, give him CASH. If you put the tip on the credit card, you are tipping the company not the person. I can't believe these companies are getting away with perpetrating this fraud on the public.

Was there a link to a story?  Like to read it if there is. A second part of this is I have herd the delivery person, may not get a penny of the delivery charges, I would like to know it that is true?  

Some retail places I think I proposing to keep all the tips and only pay servers $15 per hour.  That would be fraud IMHO that you would not be told this in advance. You have the right to know if your tip is going to who you intend it to go to.

I wanted to keep this a secret, because of the possibility of retaliation, but here goes. I am a pizza delivery driver (side job). That's how I know. This is the second pizza delivery company that I know is doing this. They give us the Credit Card tips the night we receive them in cash. But then deduct them on our next check. I think it is government approved. But we the people are not being told about what happens to any credit card tips.

There is a delivery charge on the ticket ($2.50) ;and we also get $4 per hour during the delivery and $7.25 per hour at the pizza parlor. Needless to say most people are shocked when they are told that their credit card tip goes to the company.

If I am understanding you - it's the declaration of tips that's bothering you, so use cash so you can dodge the tax?

If your pizza place has a different "take" then leave. Legally, they aren't entitled to tips at all, but the feds are since it's income. You're supposed to claim cash the same, but I am guessing you don't (which you are simply on a long list of those who don't 😉 )

On a side note - when I managed a restaurant - servers were required to declare at LEAST 10% of their sales - regardless of the actual percentage of tips (and it at least had to show 100% of the credit card tips). Restaurant didn't take a penny of that -- however, the government did.

Lets open up a can of worms on this.  Boston, when you deliver, do you use a company supplied car, or your own personal car?  What did they make you sign about insurance for a car accident, who is or is not liable?  If you do use your personal car, I hope you realize your insurance company can and will deny any claim, while using it for commercial jobs. 

When My kids turned 16, 20th century (now 21st) made me sign a waiver they would not be using the cars for any kind of delivery job. At the time it was very common for kids to deliver Dominos.  

Someone I know was applying for a Uber job, and I warned her about car insurance, may not cover them.  I am very sure if you are an Uber driver, you have to declare you car is used for commecial purposes, and most will require a special policy, not insure you under a standard use policy.  

In and out burger sued a place for using its logo, along with many others. They started a delivery business, where in and out does not deliver. They were listed as a place these people would deliver from, becoming a parasite business on top of an established business. In and out won both on the basis they had no rights to used their logo, but also that they would damage the reputation of their burgers, in and out claimed they could not control results or handling of their products delivered.  The delivery scheme was to offer delivery from place who do not normally deliver, order like anyone would, and deliver it, making money off that business unauthorized.  I'm sure most others followed suit like in and out did, and rightfully so.

And all this skimming, cheating, and corruption is why this government is having problems. Everyone's got their hands in the cookie jar. From the doctor who charged me for a consultation he didn't make, (admitted to) to all those who get unreported cash, to the military who deliberately get there rank bumped up just before they retire.

Some people and professons never get their hands in any cookie jar. 

I worked 30 years for in aerospace, punched a time clock, and every single penny of my income was documented, and I paid taxes on every dime. If we got any checks for non-working compensation, like an award, all vacation and sick leave checks, all had 42% taken out, bonuses if we ever saw one was taxed. There are no tips in my profession.  

We never got anything that was not declared, unlike servers and people who work in a tip oriented pay structure.  So many business entities work with a lot of oppotunity to cheat on taxes, pocket money, cash that is not documented. When you work in a place like I did, it never happens.  Some businesses do not pay by the hour, they pay commission, and the people are never employees, they are deemed independant contractors. They get paid directly, without deductions, which I do not understand.  When You work like I did, all income you pay SS, SDI, and state and federal taxes withheld.  

I would venture to guess most servers, have a considerable amount of undeclared income they can get away with. Who will know what you got paid, if its just cash, as opposed to a credit card that documents it?

     The military industrial complex was one of the first with their hands in the cookie jar. Remember those $1000 hammers.

Sure, it's documented that they kept the tips that were meant for us. If they would mention that any tip on the credit card goes to them, it would be OK. And of course if they pay in cash instead, the driver is better off.
