Bier Abbey seized

From the TU:

The Bier Abbey on Union Street in Schenectady was shut down Tuesday afternoon in a seizure by the state tax department over nearly $700,000 in unpaid sales taxes.

It would appear that the tax department has been trying to resolve the issue behind the scenes for months, which Gazzale said the tax department tries to do before seizing a business. The tax department originally issued a $692,068 tax warrant against the pub back in May. Gazzale said the bill, which is for taxes owed dating back to 2015, is now up to $698,597.

Yikes.
