Synagogue Seized by the IRS

Payroll tax issues seem to be the heart of the issue that will possibly cost a Worchester synagogue its facilities. The Yeshiva Achei Tmimim synagogue and the Yeshiva Academy are both housed in a building that is set for auction on January 4, 2012. The IRS requires a payment of $435,000 in taxes.

According to reports by the Worchester Telegram and Gazette, the IRS will begin the January auction at $472,000.

This is not the first time Yeshiva has found itself in financial trouble. Last year, Yeshiva lost another property that once housed the school dormitory. The building was purchased by a Yeshiva member, Steve Gaval, and will be used as a private residence.
