Al Capone, an American gangster, was speculated to have made around $100 million annually from his illegal enterprise. Al Capone inherited his business from a mentor in Chicago named Johnny Torrio. Torrio left his own business to Al Capone to run and returned to Italy.

By 1929, Al Capone's various businesses were speculated to have made $60 million from illegal alcohol as well as $25 million from his gambling establishments alone. A further $10 million was generated from vice-related enterprises with $10 million more from other sources. Al Capone was indicted on Jun. 5, 1931 by the United States government on 22 counts of income-tax invasion.
