I very much doubt that Tony runs the ENTIRE garbage business of all of New Jersey! Not even all of North Jersey, for that matter.

I get the feeling that Tony's combined, total earnings probably add up to somewhere around several G's a year . . . not that amount JUST from his criminal activities. A boss he may be, but remember, the mob as a whole doesn't make as much money as they used to back in the day, since, for example, they can no longer pull off things like skimming famous casinos (like in Havana in the Godfather Part II, or in Vegas like in Casino).

And look at Tony's house. As espansive as it is, it still isn't a mansion. I think a mob boss who makes 200 G's a year JUST from his legit businesses--meaning a lot more from his crooked businesses--would probably be able to afford to live in an even bigger house.

I think his house is pretty damn impressive, one of those would set you back a pretty penny i bet! I could easily see him making the 200k a year from his legit business, and a lot more on top form his 'other' business. The thing with tony is you never actually get a good idea where all his money goes. I mena remeber in season 4, he has it hidden under floor tiles, in the bird seed container, everywhere. Probably becuase he doesnt want FBI ever to find all this money in bank accounts and ask him to prove his income on it, remember how reluctant he was to invest in the shares and stuff when carms cousin was advising them. He was going to buy the beach house, before the marrage broke up, and hes got the boat, i bet hes meant to make quite a lot of money. Look at junior, when he was on trial, he complains about not being able to earn when hes 'on trial for his life' and tony says something like 'why dont you use that nice big pile of money your sitting on', to which junior replies 'my finances are nobodies business'. And its implied elsewhere that junior has cash, when the lawyer says it will cost something like 200k to have some experts look over the fbi tapes, hes seems quite prepared to spend that kind of money, and if junior has money, i assume tony will have a lot more than him. Just my thoughts anyway.

I believe most of his spendable earnings come through salaries; Barone Sanitation, Bada Bing, Satriale's, etc. Some he stores aside in cash, for emergency, not for living off of. Don't forget how he launders large sums of money (more than we ever see him stashing away); like 200K, if I remember correctly, through his Russian associate. I assume the assets are kept in foreign accounts and laundered in through sweetheart contracts or nonexistant services to his various legitimate businesses. The Bing is *perfect* for this because guys come in all the time and will drop 1K on a stripper and no one asks any questions, there's no proof of transaction; it's a launderer's wet dream.
Anyway, as far as total earnings go for Tony, my guess would be 500K-1M annually, considerably less for the captains and consigliere (with the exception of Ralph and possibly Vito, who run the Esplanade racketeering), and not even close for the soldiers (50-200K, moreso for Christopher).

The house is worth $1.2m

Johnny Sac has estimated worth of abuot $5m

Obviously it's very difficult for anyone to know how much these guys are really worth, even other family members.

TS does spend like a man pulling in over $1m a year, but I think he tends to spend a lot of what he earns rather than save ro stash it, as we have, many times, seen him frustrated at not having a great deal of money.

Also, he did borrow $200k from Hesh, that's not the action of a man pulling in a lot of liquid cash.
