Buying a slice from the Jersey Shore's most iconic boardwalk pizza place is about to get a bit easier.
Manco and Manco Pizza in Ocean City, historically a cash only business, announced Friday that they are officially accepting credit card purchases at their four locations.
The transition comes after owner Charles Bangle served 15 months in federal prison for tax fraud.
Prosecutors said Bangle failed to report $263,113 in income and avoided more than $91,000 in taxes. To escape federal reporting requirements, he also made cash deposits under $10,000 in February 2011.
Bangle's wife, Mary Bangle, was sentenced to three years of probation after admitting she lied to IRS agents about cash receipts she claimed were from Manco & Manco but were really for personal expenses and bank accounts.
A federal judge ordered the Bangles to pay $248,560 in restitution as part of the tax evasion sentences. Charles Bangle was released from prison last October.
Manco & Manco has three locations on the Ocean City Boardwalk and one in a strip mall in Somers Point.
