FORT PAYNE, AL (WAFF) -

State officials are asking a judge to shut down a DeKalb County business in Fort Payne for failing to pay local and state sales taxes.

Unlike some businesses that get behind, state officials said this business has not paid a dime on the merchandise it's sold since opening in May of 2011.

State revenue officials are asking a judge to order Elizabeth's Closet on North Gault Avenue to be shut down.

In papers filed in DeKalb County circuit court, revenue officials said the women and children's clothing store has not paid any sales taxes.

City officials said the business took out a business license in May, 2011, but state officials said the business did not report opening to them until December of 2011.

Court documents estimate that just over $2200 is owed the state. Just over $1800 is owed the city of Fort Payne.

A hearing date has not yet been set.

Attempts to reach the owner, Susan Miller, have been unsuccessful.
