That argument has nothing to do with tax. Why not just say that if we used 22% instead of 20%, or 17% instead of 15%, then there would be an extra dollar, which would add up to a lot? There's still no argument that has anything to do with tax or whether you should tax pre- or post-.
For that matter, why is it assumed that I don't really care about an extra dollar out of my pocket every time I go out, but the server will care about the $20 that it adds up to? If I decide that every time I eat out, I will take the extra dollar and put it in my ashtray in my car, and I won't spend any of it until it all adds up to $20 total, is it then ok to only tip based on pre-tax?
