The Maryland State Comptroller's Office on Thursday revoked a writ ordering the seizure of Funkstown Moose Lodge 2435's liquor license until back state taxes are paid, according to a letter from the office.

Tammy Schulz, revenue specialist for the comptroller's office, confirmed that she sent the letter to Sheriff Charles Mades, recalling the office's order to seize the liquor license and seize the lodge's money on the premises.

The comptroller's office filed the writ Monday in Washington County Circuit Court.

Moose Lodge 2435 Administrator Mike Stumbaugh said that a payment plan was agreed upon between the lodge and the office.

He would not disclose what the payment plan entailed.

Stumbaugh said that the lodge was waiting on paperwork to be completed before the order could be removed.

The lodge owes $4,749.75 in sales and use taxes not paid from May to October 2005, and $6,197.41 in withholding taxes not paid from August 2005 to March 2006, according to Kevin Kane, a spokesman for the comptroller's office.
