Restaurant seized in Southampton Village

Oct 10, 2008 6:56 PM

New York State has seized a Mexican take-out restaurant in Southampton Village for delinquent tax payments.

The Department of Taxation and Finance closed down La Hacienda on October 6 for failing to pay $20,836.53 in sales tax, according to a department spokesperson.

Susan Burns, the tax department’s assistant director of public information, said La Hacienda failed to turn over sales tax it collected between September 1, 2007, and May 31, 2008. Ms. Burns said La Hacienda may now also owe penalties and interest.

The department is working on a settlement so the restaurant can reopen, Ms. Burns said, explaining that, in most cases, settlements involve a down payment and a payment plan.

Without a settlement, the spokesperson warned, the restaurant’s assets will be auctioned off.
