So if a person gets paid under the table and the employer refuses to give them a 1099-T (I think that's what its called) how do you go about paying/filing taxes?

Isn't the whole point of getting paid under the table to not pay taxes?
You file it as a schedule c for a small business. I use to babysit, I claimed every dime I made! If the parents wanted a receipt that was fine with me because I did claim it all. Filing as a business you can take alot more deductions. I used pretty much my whole house, my car, etc for the business so a portion was deducted. My husband also runs his own business and has for 10 yrs. I still have a small business online, so I file for my business and dh's. I do have a full time job now too.
I use turbo tax and have not had to be audited at all. Actually once for the state I did. We were getting medicaid at the time and the did a sting operation on all self employed people. I brought in all my documents, bank statements etc. We passed their aduit some 3 hours worth of searching.

Since you were there for 17 months how did you do your taxes last year? You were there for 5 to 6 months before the end of the year. Is this a new thing they started doing?

How is that an excuse, it is what it is!!!! gotta work to take care of the kid!!!!
Ahhh. The "single parent" excuse...
well considering Im a single parent andit was the only job I could find and I didnt want to go on PA I thought it would be ok!
If you had wanted to "do the right thing" you wouldn't have worked for them to begin with.
Lol that's what I was thinking.
I pay my DCP under the table. She gives me a fabulous rate, I keep her from getting taxed. :P
