Tax Evasion on Pizza Revealed

The Happy Pizza isn't so happy anymore when they were accused of cheating the government in terms of taxes. Federal conspiracy charges were applied and millions were involved. 

The scheme used by Happy Asker involved "profit-split" which in simple terms is lying to the government about their income and splitting the saved taxes with the two associates of Happy Pizza.

Over $2.1 million was the sum of the evaded tax, which was done by Happy Asker together with Maher Bashi and Tom Yaldo - all involved in the pizza business. 

Full cooperation is made by the pizzeria, as stated by their spokesperson. 

“We understand there is an investigation. We’ve cooperated 100% and will continue to do so,” said the spokesperson.
