    you call a plumber. he comes. he says to do the job will be $300 if you pay by cash, or $350+tax($371 total) if you pay by check. would you choose the cash option, or the check option?

    I think it would be kind of ballzy for a service company doing any type of service to even tell you that you can get it cheeper if you pay cash. He does not even know if you are someone who works for the irs or something like that. I would only pay with a check, credit card and a receipt, because that is the only form of payment that I accept for my business.

    Do I still get a receipt if I pay cash? I would be leaning towards cash.

    the day before thanksgiving we had to have work done on the water line and they told us that if we paid cash we could save $100. So we paid and saved and still got a receipt. If he reports that as income is his business, mine was saving as much as i could.

    I would pay cash and get a cash receipt. Why is it "ballzy" to offer a cash discount. What if the plumber doesn't have any money in the bank and knows that the bank will place a hold on the check. In order to avoid the hassle he offers a cash discount. It is not illegal.
