Between the Buns was shut down last week after failing to pay sales tax to the state. The restaurant is expected to reopen today.

POTSDAM -- Between the Buns, 6 Elm St., will reopen today after an agreement was reached with New York State to pay all debts and continue to stay current on all tax liabilities, according to owner Meg Martin.
“We are so excited to report that we will reopen today at 2 p.m.,” Martin said.
Between the Buns was seized Oct. 27 by the state for sales tax debt.
Martin said she was under the impression that the business was in compliance with all the state’s requests and that a payment agreement had been put into place but “unfortunately the state tax department has taken another direction on this matter and had made payments toward an IPA and future sales tax returns.”
The restaurant employs 45 people.
“We appreciate everyone's support to the business, especially over the last week during this extremely difficult time, and were blown away with the amount of support from so many people,” she said.
“I feel terrible about all of this, especially for the employees, but they banded together and we are all ready to get back to work,” Martin said.
She said the experience has been “eye-opening” and the outpouring of support from the community has been “amazing.”
“We are grateful to be given another chance to serve the community,” she said.
