TOPEKA, Kan. — The Kansas Department of Revenue (KDOR) and Rod's Convenience Stores owner Rod Bradshaw have entered into an acceptable agreement allowing seven stores that were temporarily closed to resume business.

Last week, agents from the Kansas Department of Revenue accompanied by officers of the Saline County Sheriff Department executed tax warrants and closed the seven Rod’s locations in Salina, Kan., for nonpayment of retailer sales tax totaling about $49,540.

Bradshaw had until July 15 to enter into a mutual arrangement, otherwise the businesses would be closed permanently.

“It is the KDOR’s policy and practice to work with taxpayers in delinquent status to voluntarily enter into repayment agreements,” the Topeka-based department said. “It is only after these efforts and multiple failed collection attempts that the department is forced to execute a tax warrant, utilizing such actions as bank levies, till taps and ultimately asset seizure to ensure compliance with the law.”

Attempts to reach Bradshaw and Rod’s Convenience were unsuccessful.
