Trump Super PAC Giving Out ‘Trump Won’t Tax Tips’ Stickers For Restaurant Receipts

 A political action committee supporting former President Donald Trump is giving out free stickers for supporters to stick on restaurant receipts to tell workers about Trump’s promise to get rid of taxes on tips.

The super PAC, Make America Great Again Inc., announced the sticker initiative on Tuesday, telling supporters on a new website to “join the no tip tax campaign today” and “get your stickers free.”

“Trump won’t tax your tips!” the stickers read. “Vote Trump.”

Trump first called for ending taxes on tips at a Nevada rally earlier this month, saying that “people that get tips” are “going to be very happy, because when I get to office, we are going to not charge taxes on tips.”

Nevada has a large number of workers who receive tips, largely due to the recreation and tourism industries in the Las Vegas area.

Trump repeated his promise to the crowd at Turning Point Action’s convention in Michigan earlier this month.

“Tips for restaurant workers and hospitality workers and anyone else relying on tips, no more taxes on tips,” Trump said. “For restaurant workers or hotel workers or caddies or car people, it’s a lot. But anyone receiving tips, there’s no more tax on tips.”


“We mail ’em and you stick ’em!” reads the website for the sticker project. “From restaurants to beauty salons, to hotels to cabs and beyond, everyone deserves the full gratuity they worked hard to earn.”

The website also encourages people to share a photo of their sticker and receipt on social media with the hashtag #NoTipTaxes.

“The effort was inspired by the countless people that have been sharing images of them writing on receipts,” the super PAC said in an emailed press release.

Earlier this month, singer Kid Rock shared a photo of a receipt showing he had tipped $400 on a $1,143 bill at a steakhouse. On the receipt he had written, “A vote for Trump is a vote for no tax on tips!!”

Many other social media users shared photos of their receipts with similar messages as well.

On Saturday, Trump himself hopped on the trend when he stopped by a Philadelphia cheesesteak restaurant and left a $500 tip, writing “no tax on tip” on the receipt.

“It’s simple: President Trump wants hardworking American to keep more money in their pocket, Joe Biden wants to take it to give to illegal immigrants. President Trump’s plan is brilliant, and our sticker campaign will make sure it’s known far and wide,” said Taylor Budowich, CEO of Make America Great Again Inc.
