MARLOW, OK (KSWO) -A Stephens County nursing home is in hot water after failing to pay more than $20,000 in state withholding taxes on employee paychecks.

The Oklahoma Tax Commission filed a lawsuit against the Marlow Manor nursing home on Dec. 23, saying they failed to pay $20,640 in taxes. The back taxes, plus $2,145.08 in interest and $2,290 in penalties comes to a grand total of $25,075.08.

Communications director Paula Ross says the taxes were not paid during a three-month stretch in 2014, and again for six consecutive months in 2015. Ross says at this point, they are still trying to work out a payment agreement with the owners that will allow the home to remain open.

"We obviously don't want to close down a nursing home because of the people in the home. So, some businesses we close down till they pay, we try to make sure that we do what's best for the state collecting their money and that specific business," Ross explained.

A spokesperson for the Legacy Living Center, the company that owns Marlow Manor, was not available for comment.
