( – On Friday, former President Donald Trump, during an event with Club 47 members in celebration of his birthday, encouraged his voters to start writing “no tax on tips” on restaurant receipts as a means of pushing for tax reforms. 

Trump told the crowd that as part of his tax cuts plan, he would be eliminating all taxes on tips for restaurant workers. He stated that they needed to spread the word and that for the next five months, he encouraged all of his supporters to write on receipts, “vote for Trump” paired with “no tax on tips.” The idea of completely getting rid of taxes on tips was first proposed by Trump on Sunday at his rally in Las Vegas, Nevada. 

Trump also reiterated these plans when he addressed the Turning Point Action “People’s Convention” on Saturday. 

He then noted his previous announcement which would eliminate taxes for hospitality and restaurant workers on the gifts and tips that they receive. As he pointed out these workers relied on tips which is why they should not be taxed on them. 

Trump also shared that Kid Rock had already taken him up on the suggestion and had written on restaurant receipts. Kid Rock had previously shared a photo of his bill at Jeff Ruby’s Steakhouse where he had left a $400 tip and a message noting that a vote for Trump is like voting for no taxes on tips.
