WICHITA — The state on Friday seized the assets of Adventure RV and Truck Center and Adventureland RV Rentals for nonpayment of almost $310,000 in state sales tax.
According to a news release from the state, officers seized business and personal property, bank accounts and on-site cash of business owner Douglas C. Williams.
The dealership, which is at 4650 S. Broadway, will be sold at auction to pay for the taxes.
As is standard for its news releases about business seizures, the state's release said, "Only after several unsuccessful attempts does the department take the action of seizing assets, which in this instance resulted in the business being closed. The Revenue Department's standard practice is to continually encourage delinquent taxpayers, who are not lawfully filing or paying taxes – such as sales or withholding – to voluntarily enter into a repayment agreement."

To make matters worse, her parents put her in a girls school. She recovered, though, and went on to enjoy being an English major at Hendrix College (the Harvard of the Ozarks, don’t you know). She worked for the weekly Arkansas Business and the statewide daily Arkansas Democrat-Gazette before moving to Wichita to be with her favorite writer and cook, husband Joe Stumpe.
