Tax cops hit ‘Sal Capone’

New York Post - - NEWS - Emily Saul

This guy could be the next Al Capone.

An aged wiseguy has been slapped with tax-eva­sion charges for fail­ing to fork over $367,000 from real-es­tate sales, au­thor­i­ties said.

Re­puted Gen­ovese sol­dier Sal­va­tore “Sal­lie” DeMeo (in­set) ne­glected to give the feds a piece of his $2 mil­lion ac­tion when he un­loaded his shares in two Brook­lyn prop­er­ties, ac­cord­ing to court doc­u­ments.

Pros­e­cu­tors said a small chunk was fun­neled into the plumb­ing com­pany of a mobbed-up as­so­ci­ate but they couldn’t lo­cate the rest.

The beam­ing 77-year-old was re­leased on $2 mil­lion bond Thurs­day.

Capone ruled the Chicago un­der­world un­til he was con­victed on charges of tax eva­sion in 1931.
