A Buffalo, N.Y., pizzeria owner who failed to pay New York State over $100,000 in sales taxes has been ordered by a judge to deliver 12 free pies a week to a local charity that serves the poor.
Joseph Jacobbi, owner of Casa-Di-Pizza, has repaid $51,000 of the $104,295.31 tax debt so far, handing over a $25,000 check when he pleaded guilty on Monday, according to the Buffalo News.
To avoid a jail term, he agreed to repay the rest of the sales taxes that he failed to pay between March 2004 and May 2008, and deliver a dozen sheet pizzas a week for the next year to the Buffalo City Mission.
I will leave the choice of toppings up to you, State Supreme Court Justice Russell P. Buscaglia told the pizzeria owner. Jacobbi did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
