Letemeatcake!

I don't believe it - I think that it only counts the base pay for all of the thousands upon thousands of people who work in jobs where tipping is not reported.

My wife works as a dealer in a casino - her base pay is below minimum wage

with tips she makes more than most CPA's

I know fine dining servers who make in excess of 6 figures a year, yet their W2 reported wages are under 20,000

The Feds now tax servers based on the receipts of the restaurant, calculating that the servers get 15 percent of the bill.

Without a doubt working for an expensive place is a good deal. But how many servers work for such places?
