    There are many opportunities to accept cash payments. Many customers prefer to pay in cash. Legally, you should write it up, and deposit the cash. Many disreputable business owners simply put it in their pocket, and never claim it as income, recognizing that is almost impossible for that transaction to be tracked. Other bad business people cash checks at the bank on which the check was drawn, again to avoid claiming the income.

    This activity is illegal.

    Please don't get me started on dishonest people! You must claim all your income cash or not.!!!
