Pound Is Closed by DC Tax Office of Tax and Revenue
by Larry Janezich
Update: Pound has posted a comment to this story, saying they will be open by mid day tomorrow.
An alert Hill resident forwarded the photo above and the information that Pound is closed.
DC Code provides that if a person is liable to DC for tax and doesn’t pay within 10 days after notice, the Mayor may collect the tax plus penalties by levy upon all property of the person who owes the tax. If the person is a business entity, this supposedly would entail seizing the assets of the business. Capitol Hill coffee shop patrons may recall that a similar fate befell Murky’s coffee shop – the last in the list of Peregrine predecessors.
