The real situation is that for all illegal financial

transactions both the employer and the employee are liable to be prosecuted.Penalties

and punishment as provided under the Criminal

Procedure Code in force.

If an employer gets caught paying an employee under the table, can the employee get in trouble too?

They will both be in trouble unless it is believable that the employee is an independent contractor. But if neither one have paid taxes, they will both be in trouble no matter what.

We had this situation occur in a restaurant I worked at a few years ago. The answer is yes. Definitely. And if they're illegal, then they could be deported or imprisoned for using false documents to secure employment. I've seen it happen. Keep in mind that once you make you're report, the only way the government is going to check it out is if you have proof. That means you're going to have to name names.

Not only that, but the subsequent audit will also get anyone else that was paid under the table in trouble, back about five years. And your name may be attached to the investigation, which could blackball you from working in the same field nearby.

Chances are, if they were paying under the table, there are other ways they're cutting corners. Find out what those are and let the authorities know.

I recently thought about this, but I didn't want to get the one person I actually got along with in the restaurant deported.

You already know it's illegal - that's why it's called 'under the table'. Defrauding the tax system is a dangerous thing to do - the IRS have more independent prosecutorial power than any other branch of the government. Remember, they couldn't ge Al Capone on any of his gambling, murdering, or other illegal activity - but the IRS got him for tax fraud.

Your question contains the answer. What does it mean to be "paid under the table?"

Of course it is illegal because it suggests that the payments are being made to avoid the payment of taxes. People also do this to avoid paying child support, alimony, etc.

If you are caught, you can expect the IRS and your state to whack you for taxes and penalties. When you sign your tax returns, you are swearing they are accurate "under penalty of perjury."

Where I come from, people are sent to prison for perjury.

That fact that you are afraid to get caught means it must be bad. Its always better to learn from others mistake because one can never live long enough to commit all the mistakes and say "I learned my lesson." In short do not do it so you do not get caught.

This is very shameful between you and the employee. Its illegal! You will take the risk if you will be caught by your superior..Younger people will follow this habit, until they will practice in their daily lives.
