Revenue department closes Evans business

  • Follow Local Business

A Georgia Department of Revenue notice at Jump City informed customers Tuesday that the Evans indoor party facility is closed for business for failure to pay taxes.

The sign stated that the property at 4407 Evans to Locks Road was “seized for non payment of Georgia Revenue Department taxes ...” and warned people not to tamper with the seizure.

Included in the closure and seizure was Shaffer Computer Service, which is located next door.

“We’ve got our attorneys working on it, and it should be all cleared up by this afternoon or hopefully tomorrow,” business owner Henry Shaffer said today. He who would not elaborate further.

The Georgia Department of Revenue was not immediately able to provide details on the incident.

The notice was placed on windows of both businesses alongside festive St. Patrick’s Day artwork. Rides inside the facility were deflated, and the parking lot was empty Tuesday afternoon.

There'll be a lot of unhappy

There'll be a lot of unhappy kids who had birthday parties scheduled there. I can see those little kids showing up and a big ole state official turning them away.

Well, I gotta tell you folks

Well, I gotta tell you folks that I've done business with this guy several times in the past (computer work), and I've found him to be very upfront and honest. Being that that's all I have to go by, I'm going to have to give him the benefit of the doubt here..at least until I read/hear more about it. He's not one of these sleazy, fly-by-night, creepy guys you picture when you think of a tax evader. Here's hoping he gets this all straightened out, and soon.

Opinion, same here for

Opinion, same here for Shaffer. Pretty upfront guy from my experience.

As the article doesn't elaborate, are we talking sales tax, income tax, property tax, furniture and fixture tax [I hate that one], or what?

If it is sales tax, does Jump City collect sales tax, since they are offering a service? Were they supposed to? Were they not aware?

I'm not familiar with a service type of business like rental of a facility. I do know that as of now, service for computers is not taxed, although the parts would be.

Not nearly enough information.

So you delete the two

So you delete the two comments telling it how it REALLY is and what employee experiences were like? It wasn't slander... I promise you further investigation will pull up a lot more grimey stuff... That's ridiculous. Austin Rhodes, where are you??
