Restaurant delivery receipts: Why don't I get them in NYC?

What's the story with delivery men from certain restaurants retaining the receipts for my orders? I've found Totonno's and several other Upper East Side places won't turn them over even upon request. Is something nefarious going on, i.e., hiding revenue, or is the explanation more mundane? Am I the only one who's had this experience?
