PHILADELPHIA (AP) - A Philadelphia-area pizzeria owner has been charged with not reporting $3 million in revenue and paying employees under the table to avoid paying $1 million in taxes.

Philly.com (https://bit.ly/2r9oSrX ) says federal authorities on Thursday charged 49-year-old Giuseppe “Pino” DiMeo with conspiring to defraud the Internal Revenue Service and 12 counts of filing false tax returns.

IRS agents raided his Montgomery County home three years ago and say DiMeo paid many employees without reporting it from 2008 to 2012. The charges also contend DiMeo skimmed cash from four restaurants - the DiMeo Pizza Kitchens in Upper Roxborough, Conshohocken and Wilmington, and the former Allegro Pizza in Philadelphia.

DiMeo told Philly.com “That’s not what it is,” when asked about the charges Thursday. His defense attorney hasn’t responded to requests for comment.
