Missouri Department of Revenue Attempts To Collect More Tax On Cash Tips
JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — A measure restaurant owners say is needed because the Missouri Department of Revenue attempts to collect more tax on cash tips is now headed to the governor. The Senate yesterday approved a measure that specifies restaurant owners are responsible for collecting income taxes only on cash tips a worker reports to them. Owners have complained that the revenue department has been trying to collect money from them when it appears servers have failed to report tips.
