SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WGGB) — A Sumner Avenue fixture was temporarily closed Tuesday after being seized by the state for non-payment of taxes.

Ann Dufresne, spokesperson for the state’s Department of Revenue, says that members of the agency seized GRW Bakery LLC, which is doing business as Gus and Paul’s Bakery, Tuesday morning around 10:30 a.m. after several months of negotiations over back taxes that were due.

The state says that the bakery owes $57,639.47 in meals taxes and local meals taxes.

A few hours later, Dufresne notes that representatives from Gus and Paul’s entered into a repayment agreement with the state and the bakery was released from seizure and was allowed to reopen.
