FAYETTEVILLE (KFSM) – The Sound Warehouse in downtown Fayetteville was shut down Wednesday after the business fell into tax debt and failed to pay its rent on the building space, according to court documents in Washington County.
A “No Trespassing” sign on the store’s window notes the property was seized by the Washington County Sheriff’s Office, after a Writ of Possession was filed in a civil case between Sound Warehouse and Rendl Management LLC, according to court documents. The eviction case was brought forth by the management company after the business failed to pay rent on its space, the documents state.
The building was closed the same day a tax lien was also filed against the business by the Arkansas Department of Finance and Administration. The state Department of Finance and Administration document states the store has owed the state $1,569 in taxes since February without paying.
“This certificate of indebtedness shall continue in force for 10 years from the date of filing and shall automatically expire after the 10-year period has run if no satisfaction has been entered prior to that time,” the tax lien document states.
The seizure included the building itself, not the contents inside, according to the Sheriff’s Office.
