    My DH gets quarterly bonuses. It all appears on his group certificate & he gets taxed a s&@tload on bonus money. When it comes in we work out together what to put it towards: usually a couple hundred for him to blow on man stuff & the rest goes towards holidays or large purchases.

    However, his work also sometimes offers sales incentives in the form of prepaid Visa cards. Usually $50 or $100, but once he got one for $700. So if the bonus was given as gift cards it would be like cash I guess? Anyways they don't show up on tax stuff. I don't see how you could track it. I would be totally fine with DH spending these entirely on himself, he earned it!

    Default Is it possible. ..I know it is ...well ...I just don't have proof

    Not if they were paid electronically, but I suppose he could get gift cards, cash etc. It'd be risky for the company though surely? Is this your DH?

    If DF kept it from me, I'd be p!ssed. I'd be fine if he wanted to spend a portion of it on luxuries for himself, however I would expect those funds to still enter the household income pool so that the entire household could benefit.

    He may not pay tax on it but the company might - I can write a cheque for a $1000 gift card for my secretary but my company will have to pay the tax ( or deduct it) not her

    I get bonuses but they appear on my pay slips and are heavily taxed. My boss is nice enough to speed it out over many pays so I don't get taxed as much.

    A friend of mine writes his over time and bonuses in a book and say he has $5,000 worth. His boss will then use the business money to buy him things. He doesn't work for this company anymore but at one stage he had $20,000 in the book. So he was never taxed on any of it. He thought it was all legit!!! 😁
