Hotel Financial Trouble
Employees of the Clarion Hotel in Gainesville found out their paychecks had bounced, in some cases after they had already deposited them.
One of the hotel's managers said those employees have received their money. He also said the company, Keystone Inc., paid employees back for any fees from the banks.
But Keystone Inc. owes more than just bank fees. Matt Geiger, of Alachua County's Tax Collector's Office, said the company owes more than $400,000 in property taxes. Technically, that's okay because tax certificates allow businesses to buy more time. But if they are tangibles taxes, which total to about $20,000, are not paid by the end of this month, the county can seize the property and sell it.
"Our goal would be to get those taxes collected," Geiger said.
An attorney for the tax collector said Keystone Inc. plans on paying the fees by the deadline.
