    Battle’s shut down



    Restaurants closed in Ames and Nevada

    The Ames and Nevada locations of Battle’s Barbeque were forcibly closed Tuesday due to late payment and nonpayment of income taxes, according to a source from the state.

    Police from both cities were asked to escort workers from the Iowa Department of Revenue as they shut both stores at around noon.

    Marty McNeal, an employee at the Ames location at 218 Welch Ave. on the campus of Iowa State University, said he understood it to be a matter of finances.

    “Basically, our finances went a little downhill,” he said. “I don’t know much, other than there were some bills (owner) Sherry Battle didn’t get paid off.”

    Renee Mulvey, of the Iowa Department of Revenue, said Battle had been late on paying sales taxes on the two stores on 11 occasions in the last 24 months. To stay open, the state would have required the company to post a $15,100 bond against its tax liability. Battle reportedly did not pay and did not make arrangements for payment.

    “They had a hearing before the Administrative Hearings Division of the Iowa Department of Inspections and Appeals, and they were told on Aug. 21, 2008, to stop making taxable sales,” Mulvey said. “So the issue that we’re talking about is sales tax in both cases. They did not cease making taxable sales, and so today both businesses were forcibly closed.”

    Mulvey also said the company owed unpaid sales taxes, but she would not specify the amount.

    It is kind of a bummer....whenever we have record reps come into town, this is where we'd go...I know a couple of them who said naughty words when I told them this today.

    I don't know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everyone.
