I say you turn the guy in. If fact, anytime you see a business ring up $0 sale on their register, you should turn them in. Why? Because in a very real sense, he is stealing from you!. All of us who pay via withholding are also making up for their theft of revenue from the goverment through higher taxes.

BTW, I've often wondered exactly how much tax revenue is lost each year due to the "under the table" cash economy. Does anyone know if the IRS has estimated this?
