A Hays restaurant was seized by the Kansas Department of Revenue this week for non-payment of taxes.

Professor's Steakhouse and Saloon, 522 E. 12th, was closed this week. Red signs posted on the building stated the property had been seized and is in the possession of the state of Kansas.

According to the Kansas State Department of Revenue, a seizure typically is prompted when back taxes are owed and after department personnel have tried to work with the party to resolve the issue.

The department of revenue website shows two outstanding warrants totaling $68,262.76 associated with Professor's Steakhouse.

Restaurant owner Mike Kisner declined to comment on the situation.
