Overview

There are millions of workers in the USA that rely on tips for most of their income, and there are well over two million businesses where the employers rely on tipped employees. According to recent statistics from the U.S. Department of Labor, food and beverage service-related workers held 6.5 million jobs. The U.S. Department of Labor estimates in a recent study that tips and gratuities may account for well over $5 billion per year being left on plates and tip trays, financed on credit cards and handed directly into happy, open palms.

But let’s face facts. Relying on customers’ tips for your income is tough. The average customer just doesn’t realize how difficult and hard the average waiter, waitress, hair dresser, concierge, cab driver, maître d', or bartender works for their money. Dealing with and satisfying the general public is one of the most demanding jobs around. Many, if not most, tipped employees have a tough time making ends meet. And then there are the complicated IRS tax laws regarding tipping and gratuities that most employees and few employers know how to handle correctly.

For the first time this new book deals with all aspects of tips and gratuities. For the employee or self-employed, learn how to earn more tips and how to properly account for and pay taxes on them. For the employer: how to manage and properly account for the taxes on tipped employees; for the bookkeeper and accountant: get the latest on tax and withholding laws. Apart from all great and practical advice in the book, it has to be remembered that tips have to be earned, thus there are literally hundreds of little tricks, hints and suggestions to help tipped employees – well, make more tips!

    Great read for anyone in tipping industry

    Tipping can cause some confusion not only for customers but also for the employees who receive and the employer who handles the tipped employee. This book is a godsend for those who are thinking about becoming a tipped employee. It is loaded with lots of advice on how to increase the tips that are received. The book is also great for those who are thinking about hiring tipped employees and for those who already have tipped employees. The book is easy to use and starts with helping people to understand what tips are and the history of tipping. This history helps to explain the reasons why many tip today. The author goes into explanation about the tip etiquette of today and discusses such controversial subjects such as a tip jar. The author lends some advice to the employee which not only is guaranteed to help with the gratuity but also helps the business out as well. Employers are also given suggestions for how they can both boost service and tips. The last part of the book talks about the laws surrounding gratuity as it is seen as income. It explains basic concepts such as allocated tips, why records are important, and penalties that can arise by not reporting all tips. At the end of the book, there are more resources to answer any questions about the laws in depth. The author is able to unravel much of the confusion surrounding tipping. It is recommended that anyone who has ever or is thinking about working in a tipping industry or with tip receiving employees should read this.

    It Is A Complete Guide

    The Complete Guide to Tips & Gratuities lives up to its name. An established restaurateur attempted to explain the ins and outs of tipping to me. Quite frankly, I had no idea the topic warranted such consideration. I now realize that my future employees and I can land ourselves in hot water if we are uneducated on the matter. This book sheds light on tipping practices across cultures avoiding faux pas that could cost us repeat business. It guided me through the waters of reporting tips to the IRS, and even breaks down filling out W-2 forms. Don¿t mistake this book as an optional purchase. When you think about the rules involving tipping, and the penalties for breaking them, this is one book you can¿t afford to pass up.
