October 27, 2016

A Carlstadt man was sentenced this week to six-months in prison and another six-months of home confinement for failing to report more than $190,000 in income he received from his roofing business.

Michael Tattoli, owner and operator of Mike’s All Seasons Roofing and Construction, was also ordered Wednesday to serve one year of supervised release and pay a fine of $3,000 by U.S. District Judge Anne E. Thompson presiding in Newark.

On June 16, Tattoli pleaded guilty to personal income tax evasion pertaining his 2010, 2011, and 2012 tax returns.

From 2010 to 2012, authorities said, Tattoli deposited about $191,295 in checks payable to his company into his personal bank accounts and used the money to pay for his personal expenses, but failed to report the income on his tax returns.

He underreported his income by $106,300 for 2010, $50,745 for 2011, and $34,250 for 2012, resulting in a total tax due and owing for those years of $62,444, according to the charging document.

The investigation was conducted by the Internal Revenue Service Criminal Investigation, Newark Field Office.
