Recap: Tips for Tipping

“If you fear change, leave it in the tip jar.” – Unknown

Does your business have employees that receive tips? Tips can cause confusion for employers when running a business. Read our full article from last week, where we covered many of the frequently asked questions about running a business where employees receive tips, including:

  • What conditions must be met in order for money given to be considered a ‘tip’
  • How much an employee must receive in order to be considered a ‘tipped employee’
  • The ways you can collect and report tips
  • Details on the way that tips work when issued from a customer’s credit card
  • How tips will affect your taxes
