No, restaurants that specialize in magic might take applications, I don't know because I've never held a job at a magic themed restaurant, but typically there is no box to check for magician on a job application.

Why would you apply for a job?? Being a restaurant magician is self employment, I don't work for any restaurant I entertain at them. Yes I charge a fee to the restaurant but I am responsible for all taxes, insurance, ect because I employ myself.

That is why you have to find out all the local laws and tax regulations that apply to self employment.

Well said Peter. As an entertainer, you do not work for the restaurant. You contract your services to them.

You are considered an independent vendor. They may require you to fill out a W-9 form.

And though I want to be perfectly legal, MAN! I hate that.

Once again, if you ever have questions on restaurant work, just listen to Paddy. Once again, he's pointing you to consulting the law before doing anything. Great advice.

Just to clarify my previous post, I certainly was not implying that if they didn't W-9 me, that I wouldn't report it. I would just prefer to handle everything myself rather than having to worry about a bunch of 1098 forms (or whatever form it was..I've blocked it out now) at the beginning of the year.

Always keep everything legal. But remember to keep track of all the qualified deductions as well. There is a whole lot you can deduct that many entertainers do not realize.
