Posted: Updated:
ANDOVER, Kan. (KAKE) -

The assets of an Andover restaurant have been seized because the owner owes more than $31,000 in back taxes. 

Agents from the Kansas Department of Revenue and Andover police on Monday seized the assets of El Jaripeo Mexican Restaurant Inc., doing business as Las Palmas.

The KDOR said the delinquent retail sales, liquor and withholding tax totals $31,363.56.

The types of assets seized include all known bank accounts, on-site cash, business inventory, as well as personal property belonging to the owner. The business was sealed closed with a public notice posted on the outside.

All seized assets will be sold at public auction and the proceeds will pay for the delinquent taxes.

The KDOR says its 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."
