Previous Broadview Hotel owners and current manager assessed for back taxes

WICHITA — The Kansas Department of Revenue is seeking more than $2.2 million in back taxes from the former owners of the Broadview Hotel and the current general manager.

The department wasn't able to issue tax warrants against Broadview Hospitality Holdings and Wichita Realty previously because the companies were in bankruptcy.

Wichita Realty's bankruptcy was dismissed in 2007, and Broadview Hospitality Holdings' bankruptcy was dismissed in July.

The state won't be able to retrieve all of the money it believes it's owed because the statute of limitations has run out on some of it.

"We'll get a big chunk of it," says Nancee Crider, problem resolution manager in the compliance enforcement division of the Department of Revenue. "The very vast, vast majority . . . is collectible."
