The Kansas Department of Revenue (KDOR) seized all assets, cash and inventory of American Formal Wear in Shawnee, Kan. State officials served tax warrants for non-payment of sales taxes on Monday, Sept. 27.
All known bank accounts, on-site cash, business inventory, and personal property assets belonging to the owner were seized and the business was sealed closed. Seized assets will be sold at public auction to pay delinquent taxes.
