Kids’ store seized by state for taxes

Rock, Rattle and Stroll, a children’s clothing store at 117 Eighth St., was seized this week by the Colorado Department of Revenue for nonpayment of sales taxes.

Compliance agent Michael Thayer posted notice on the front door of the store informing the public that the fixtures and inventory would be sold at auction at a future date to satisfy the claim.

The state is seeking $1,302 from owner Bethany DeBlasis for taxes collected in May.

Allison Marino of the city of Steamboat Springs also has served a warrant on DeBlasis seeking city sales taxes collected between March 19 and Oct. 15. Information posted by Marion indicates Rock, Rattle and Stroll owes just more than $1,815 in city sales taxes and more than $1,200 in penalties.

DeBlasis could not be reached for comment Friday afternoon.

Rock, Rattle and Stroll originally opened in Elk River Crossing shopping center on Steamboat’s west side. The store made a move to a smaller space just off Lincoln Avenue last summer.
