Collect a tip report from employees every pay period
It is the responsibility for every employee to keep track of all their tip money collected. It is unreasonable to conclude that the restaurant manager will know how much cash tip every customer gave. However, Employers must require employees to report their tips, since tips of $20 or more per month are subject to withholding tax and employers are required to pay the employer's portion of those taxes.
