Landscaper Faces Tax Evasion Charges

A New Jersey landscaping company owner was recently arrested and charged with three counts of tax evasion. Christopher M. Aldarelli, owner of Aldo 1 Landscaping & Lawn Service and Aldarelli Enterprises, could get up to five years in prison and a $100,000 fine for each count if found guilty.

?Prosecutors allege that during the years between 1998 and 2000, Aldarelli's two companies performed substantial paving, constructing, landscaping, and lawn-cutting work for municipalities and private residences in New Jersey. Aldarelli allegedly only paid $15,000 a year in taxes during those three years, while prosecutors argue that he owed at least $100,000 each year.

The FBI search of Aldarelli's home was an outgrowth of the investigation into the late Philip Knovitz, a millionaire and power broker. D. Weldon, mayor of Ocean Township and city manager of Asbury Park, resigned in connection to the investigation and pleaded guilty to extorting $64,000 from three different developers.
