Roberta’s Pizza Allegedly Owes $480,000 in Unpaid Taxes
The famous Brooklyn pizzeria Roberta’s Pizza may be $480,000 short on taxes.
Gothamist reports that the New York state Department of Taxation and Finance released a list of 250 businesses of delinquent taxpayers this month. A company called Nineteen Twenty Four Inc. owes a total of $479,724.14, and can be traced back to 271 Moore Street.
Roberta’s is located at 261 Moore Street, but the other address is allegedly registered as the pizza shop. A spokesperson told Gothamist that Nineteen Twenty Four Inc. has two warrants outstanding for corporate tax and sales tax.
Roberta’s is not a stranger to legal trouble. Earlier this year, there was a lawsuit between the former and current owners of the pizzeria. In addition, in July, a worker filed a complaint against the shop, alleging that he was not paid for working overtime.
