  • I'm not sure I understand the question...but there are some jobs that will pay under the table, just have to find the ones willing to pay in cash.

  • Don't know what your interests are but at there are different categories of jobs like pet care and house sitting, etc. Use the pulldowns on the main page to see the categories. Maybe something there will interest you.

  • Babysitting. Some actual companies will do this; but with the IRS cracking down there is a risk (that's not worth taking) that the company and yourself will get in BIG trouble.

  • And I meant to say most of those jobs pay cash

  • Check online because there are stay home jobs that are real and they do pay. they don't pay much but they do pay.
    And anything under $600 they don't report.

  • Aside from the legal aspect, it can be hard to find someone willing to pay cash or someone who won't be expecting a receipt for their tax purposes (depending on the kind of job). Maybe house cleaning or dog walking? Think about what skills or talents you have, or what you have to offer that might be different, and how you could market that to potential customers. For instance, maybe you have a lot of time on your hands. You could offer yourself as an errand girl and run those errands people don't have time for (picking up dry cleaning, mailing off pkgs, etc.).
