UPDATED — The Kansas Department of Revenue and Alcoholic Beverage Control seized assets of two businesses on Tuesday.
According to a news release, the state closed four Vision Doctors sites, including offices in Wichita, Derby, Goddard and Wellington, for what it says is $229,981 in back taxes.
The state also closed Showroom Automotive in Haysville for what it says is $11,294 in unpaid sales tax.
The state issued a follow-up release today to say that it allowed Vision Doctors to reopen “after the owner submitted missing tax returns for the business periods on the warrants. The income tax warrants are still in effect.”
Neither Michael Gordon with Vision Doctors nor Samuel A. Valdez or Samuel J. Valdez with Showroom Automotive could be reached for comment.
The release says assets from both of the businesses will be sold at auction to pay the taxes.
