In answering another question about tipping in restaurants, I saw several people who said that servers are taxed on the total bill, so they would lose money if you don't tip on the whole amount. Does anyone know what this means exactly? I worked as a server in a fine restaurant for years and I never in my life heard of such a thing. The only thing we had to PAY was we had to pay the credit card fees on the tips on credit cards, so of course a cash tip was always appreciated. But we never had to pay taxes on the bill. I don't even understand what this means to be honest. Thanks!
