(KAIR)--An Atchison business has been seized for non-payment of taxes.

That’s apparent due to the pink “seized” signs, used by the Kansas Department of Revenue when a seizure is made, posted to the windows of JW’s Boys Barbecue, located at 1400 U.S. Highway 59, in Atchison.

An early Monday afternoon post to the restaurant’s Facebook page acknowledges the closure, saying the restaurant is closed temporarily, and hopes to reopen within a day or so. The seizure itself is not mentioned. However, in a Facebook message, following an inquiry by MSC News, the business acknowledged the situation, but did not offer further comment. 

According to a release from the KDOR, the seizure comes as the business owes more than $10,000 in sales and withholding taxes.

KDOR agents were accompanied by Atchison Police Monday to execute tax warrants and to seize the assets of the business, including all known bank accounts, on-site cash, business inventory, as well as personal property belonging to the owner.

According to the release, "KDOR’s policy and practice is to work with taxpayers in delinquent status to voluntarily enter into repayment agreements. It is only after these efforts and multiple failed collection attempts that the Department is forced to execute a tax warrant, utilizing such actions as bank levies, till taps, and ultimately asset seizure to ensure compliance with the law."

The release also notes that "all seized assets will be sold at public auction and the proceeds will pay for the delinquent taxes if an agreement is not reached."
