Il Positano Shut Down By State for Unpaid Taxes

Kinnelon pizzeria and Italian restaurant closed on Jan. 22.

Il Positano, an Italian eatery and pizzeria in the Meadtown Shopping Center in Kinnelon, was seized and shut down by the state last month because the owners allegedly did not pay taxes.

The business has been closed since Jan. 22, according to Suburban Trends. A bright orange sign explaining the seizure is posted on the door. A total of $67,131, based on three separate judgments from the past three years, is owed to the New Jersey Department of Taxation by the owners of the business.

The owners would have to pay the taxes in full or negotiate a payment plan with the state before reopening Il Positano, Suburban Trends reported.

Gossip??? Unless the news story is made up, it is fact and news. So, what was so much more relevant in Kinnelon that we need to know about.

Yes, if you don't pay your taxes, the public does have a right to know.

Sorry, but Kinnelon's food was better.

If we didn't pay our taxes, we would be in jail. Business's that collect taxes and don't pay them to the State are dishonest and should be closed. I'm glad we know why this place was shut though, at least no one has to worry about the food they might have eaten there as being potentially poisonous.....Thanks Patch!
