Ga. revenue officers closed east Macon business | News
State investigators on Thursday closed down an east Macon tire store accused of owing more than $92,000 in unpaid taxes.
It happened at Tires Unlimited at 737 Shurling Drive.
Signs outside the tire store said "Closed" while several investigators inside appeared to look at store records. Bibb County deputies were also on the scene.
Special agent Douglas Legg said they closed the business for an enforcement action, but referred further questions to an agency spokesman in Atlanta.
Agency spokesman Nick Genesi emailed 13WMAZ a copy of a search-warrant affidavit that claimed the owner, John Dixon, had collected $83,658 in sales tax and $9,086 in payroll taxes that were not paid to the state. Genesi declined further comment.
The agency's duties include collecting sales-tax revenue.
Tires Unlimited has been in business since August 2003, according to the state.
