Jimbo’s on pro­ba­tion for not pay­ing liquor taxes

A pre-hear­ing ne­go­ti­a­tion with the owner of a Por­terdale res­tau­rant laid out guide­lines to fol­low if he wants to keep his al­co­hol li­cense.

James Stalvey Jr. was called to Tues­day’s Por­terdale City Coun­cil meet­ing for his fail­ure to file dis­tilled spir­its ex­cise tax re­turns and to pay ex­cise taxes for Jimbo’s Grill at the Mill by the law­ful dead­line. He paid taxes on the res­tau­rant’s al­co­hol li­cense for the months of Jan­uary through June on Aug. 1.

The Coun­cil gave Stalvey six stip­u­la­tions he must fol­low dur­ing a 12-month pro­ba­tion pe­riod.

“If he breaks any of the stip­u­la­tions, his al­co­hol li­censes, all of them, will be re­voked,” said Me­gan Reid, city clerk for the City of Por­terdale.

To avoid an au­to­matic re­vo­ca­tion of his al­co­hol li­censes, he must:

- File his re­turns and pay the 3 per­cent dis­tilled spir­its ex­cise tax re­turns by the 10th of each month start­ing in Septem­ber

- Pay with cashier’s check, cash or money order

- Pay court costs of $300

- Pay $150 in late fees for the past six months

- Have an au­dit pre­pared by a CPA at his own ex­pense for the first six months of the year per­tain­ing spir­its sales, to be sub­mit­ted by Novem­ber 1

- Have an au­dit pre­pared by a CPA at his own ex­pense for the year’s end per­tain­ing to dis­tilled spirit sales, to be sub­mit­ted by March 1, 2015 Reid said Stalvey was “very agree­able, he un­der­stood. He said he would do it to keep his li­cense open.”
