The operator of Rexall Grill, a Duluth, Ga., institution forced to close this week, owes $500,336.60 in state sales taxes and penalties, according to a report in The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
Gail Herrin had not paid taxes in a five-year period from January 2004 to October 2009. The bill was more than $248,000, with interest, penalties and collection fees doubling that amount, according to documents from the Georgia Department of Revenue.
Herrin has run the landmark restaurant on Buford Highway since 1982. She did not return phone calls Friday.
A sale of various items, including Coca-Cola memorabilia, will be held at 10 a.m. July 6 at Rexall Grill.
