Am I allowed to ask or even demand to receive my salary in cash? I wonder if I can negotiate that. A briefcase of stacks. Effort/compensation…It’d all feel so much more tangible.

Nice! I didn’t even think about that. I was assuming they’d take tax out first and give me the rest in 20s. But now you say that, got my wheels turning!

In my first part-time job at K-mart (when I was a student) we were paid in cold, hard cash with tax withheld. I think it was to alleviate some of the cash reserves in the store and encourage you to buy something on your way out.

But... why?

If the tangible feeling is what you're after, just stick with the direct deposit then go and withdraw it from the bank. It'll save you the 'negotiation' hassle (IF your job will even consider it) and odd looks from HR.

I’d also be willing to accept in small brownish burlap bags, with a cinch string to tie it, and a big green “$” printed on the side. That’d be so good.

I think the answer to figuring out fair taxation is everyone must pay their taxes monthly themselves to the government. So you get the gross, you then have to transfer the money. Like freelancers on 1099, but everyone.

The tax convo would get real interesting if that happened! You must watch it come and then leave the account.

I think a lot of people would be a lot more protective of what they earned, and conscious to how much is being taken. It’d be very interesting indeed.
