Los Comales closes both locations for tax problems

Posted by on Tue, Jun 3, 2014 at 2:20 PM

Both locations of Los Comales, a popular Durham taqueria, are now closed after the business failed to pay more than $180,000 in taxes, penalties and interest.

Los Comales De Durham LLC has five liens against it, the oldest of which dates back to 2008. Three of the liens were issued by the North Carolina Department of Revenue and total $180,183.05. The other two liens come from the Employment Security Commission of North Carolina and total $2,042.35.

The revenue department closed the restaurants at 2103 Roxboro St. and 3511 Witherspoon Blvd. on May 28. Over the next week, state officials will finish taking inventory of the business’ assets in preparation for auction, according to Trevor Johnson, public information officer for the Department of Revenue.

The auction date will likely be set in the next week or two. Los Comales has until the auction to settle its liens before the NCDOR sells all of its assets.

Los Comales opened its Witherspoon Boulevard location last fall.

Los Comales Owner Braulio Angel Rubio did not return phone messages by press time.
