ASPEN, Colo. (AP) One of Aspen's most affordable restaurants is closed after being seized by state officials for back taxes.
State revenue officials changed the locks at Little Annie's Eating House Tuesday. It will be auctioned off Oct. 29 if owner Ed Dingilian doesn't pay about $44,000 in sales taxes.
He told the Aspen Daily News (http://bit.ly/1ct1mZB ) he would try to pay the debt before the deadline. He didn't want to say much for fear of hurting his chances of resolving the situation but pointed to the poor condition of the economy as the reason why the taxes weren't paid.
The future of the 41-year-old restaurant was already in question because the building's owners were considering renting it to another business when its lease expires at the end of the month.
