 There is a tax that can be filed.  It's called 1099. He has to report he income and you bet your bottom dollar the business will send him a 1099 instead of a w-2.

He still has to report it, if he doesnt and the company he works for reports it, hes in a hell of a lot of trouble oh and you are too, since youre married and probably file jointly.

If he gets paid in cash, he must still pay income tax.  If the employer doesn't take the tax out and you live in a state that requires payment of income tax, your husband must do all the paperwork himself.  If you don't claim his income you can go to jail for tax evasion.

You are supposed to report cash so I don't see how there's no more income tax for you unless you plan to illegally report cash.

He would be a 1099. You can set it up to where he pays a little every month so that he doesn't have to pay a large amount at the end of the year. 

I wish I didn't have to pay taxes anymore. As a 1099, I end up paying rather than receiving everytime. Now THAT sucks.

Yeah if he still reports earnings and you pay taxes on what he makes, you can still file taxes... Which is the legal thing to do.. The IRS might start to wonder when you guys all the sudden stop filing taxes
