      Hi alvarezjsu. Thanks for watching. Glad you like the vids!
      As for your question… Wow, that’s a huge topic!
      Do you have any specific examples that you’re thinking of? It might be a little easier to try and answer that.

    Hi Syl,
    I like your video lessons very. OK, my question is. For example, ‘I’ll pay you 20 bucks, cash’. Does that mean ‘I’ll pay you 20 bucks, under the table. Am I right?
    Thanks for your time.
    Jack.

      Depends. Cash simply means cash. But if your real meaning is “I’ll pay you cash so you don’t have to declare taxes on it” then that is under the table. If taxes aren’t part of your thinking then it’s not under the table, it’s just cash.
