Aston Manor hit for not paying taxes, shut down for foreseeable future

It would appear Seattle may have lost another major nightlife player, with a notice appearing on the door of Aston Manor, revoking the taxpayer registration for the club’s Las Vegas-based parent company.

The notice comes from the Washington State Department of Revenue, citing “unpaid taxes, increases, and/or penalties in the amounts of $137,016.25 and $40,429.13.”

Tax warrants — essentially citations issued when you fail to pay your taxes — were issued against Aston Manor on Nov. 27, 2018, and March 5, 2019. Because they went unpaid for more than 30 days, the DOR exercised its right to revoke the club’s taxpayer registration, as well as its reseller permit. The latter typically allows venues to purchase items like food and liquor for resale free of sales tax.

Seattle's Aston Manor Nightclub Opening Its Doors To A Younger Crowd

Aston Manor has been hosting EDM, hip-hop, and Top 40 shows in Seattle’s SODO neighborhood since 2013.

From here, the venue’s management can get its registration reinstated, but only if it either pays its back taxes, or makes satisfactory arrangements with the DOR to do so at a later date.

A June 27 show originally scheduled to take place at Aston was recently moved to The Underground.

Rumblings that the show would be moved began as early as Wednesday. The venue was also closed to the public over Paradiso weekend, although at the time, it appeared to be a routine closure centered around the presence of the popular out-of-town festival.

The website for Aston’s parent company, 1923 Management, is no longer active. We have reached out to agents at Aston Manor and 1923 for comment and await a response.

    Not to mention they have a habit of never paying their security staff which is why several of us quit
