Kansas is waiving interest and penalties on back taxes, starting Tuesday through Oct. 15.
Over $92,000 in unpaid taxes prompt the seizure of a Salina business.
According to the Kansas Department of Revenue, on Wednesday Kansas Department of Revenue civil tax enforcement agents with Saline and Ottawa counties sheriff’s departments seized the business assets of Gilco, Inc. DBA: Midas Muffler Shop which owed $92,140 in state sales and withholding taxes.
Officers seized all known bank accounts, on-site cash, business inventory and personal property assets belonging to owner Roger Peck. The automotive shop, at 845 N. Broadway Blvd. Salina, was sealed and closed. The assets will be sold at public auction to pay the taxes owed.
Warrant execution occurs when all other collection attempts, including multiple letters, telephone calls, letters of impending legal action, tax liens filed with the local District Court to secure the debt, previous bank levies and on-site till taps are executed to bring the taxpayer into compliance have been exhausted.
Only after several unsuccessful attempts does the department take the action of seizing assets, which in this instance resulted in the business being closed.
