Top Under the Table Jobs

There are numerous gigs you can do in order to make extra money that can go towards your savings, investments, or helping pay down debt faster. 

What Does “Under the Table Jobs” Mean?

It simply means you earn money that is “off the record” when it comes to reporting the income and strictly paid in cash. You as the person who did the work, will get cash for your time instead of an official paycheck. This means no taxes, social security taken, and no reporting.

Is it against the law to work under the table?
