HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) – The Pennsylvania Office of Attorney General has filed charges against a York County pizza shop owner who is accused of failing to pay nearly $70,000 in taxes.

Anthony Sottasanta, 47, is the owner of Parma Pizza on Grantley Road in Spring Garden Township.

According to investigators, Sottasanta failed to file and pay sales and employer withholding taxes for his business, instead using some of the funds to cover the costs of operating.

He is charged with felony and misdemeanor counts of failure to make required disposition of funds received, plus misdemeanor counts of willful failure to timely pay state personal income tax.
