Here in the US servers must claim their tips to the IRS. There's some kind of formula that every restaurant must use to report tips. (I hope someone else can explain this more clearly.)

When this first came into effect I had a friend who was a server. On her first check she actually owed the restaurant money! (That was the end of her server career!)
