Under The Table Jobs That Pay Cash: Cheques and Bank transfers are a good way to start but sometimes, cash in hand is most preferred. That brings us to the core of this article, under-the-table jobs that pay cash. These gigs are flexible too because you can do them on a part-time or even full-time basis.

In this article, we will be providing a list of under-the-table jobs that pay cash in 2020. So if you need some notes in your wallet, this one is for you.

Before we get down to business, we need to clarify what it means to get paid “under the table”. To put it bluntly, it’s work (and wages) that are not reported to the government. So you work “off the books” and basically make money without a real job!

There may be other reasons why some people do it but mainly it is so you can avoid paying taxes on it.

IMPORTANT: Let’s be clear I’m not advocating you hide your income and avoid paying taxes on what you earn with these side jobs.

It’s obviously your decision. But in general, they should declare any money you earn on your taxes. Even if it’s cash, you need to declare it – otherwise, it’s income tax evasion.
