Taxes in the United States are complicated.

There are so many shortcuts and loopholes people can take advantage of, but the problem is that most people don’t even know about them.

Well, if you’re not too well-versed in how this all works, you’re going to want to pay attention to what this DoorDash driver had to say…because it might make you want to think about switching careers.

The man claimed that he pays much less in taxes than people who work salaried jobs and receive W-2 forms every year.

The driver said, “When we get an order in it shows the base pay and the tip on there, so we can choose to accept it or decline it. So yeah, technically we’re working for tips still, but at the end of the day, we only accept the orders actually worth our time.”

He went on to say, “Why would I get a real job when I make more than your boss? You see W-2ers like this are brainwashed into thinking, ‘Oh just because he does DoorDash [he] probably doesn’t make a lot of money.’ But at the end of the day, not only do I make more than your boss, I pay far less taxes than you.”

Something to think about…
