Toby Keith’s ‘I Love This Bar’ in Syracuse Sued by New York State

Update: Toby isn’t in trouble because he doesn’t own any of his “I Love” restaurants. Toby has a licensing agreement that allows the owners to use his name.Original story:

I’m going to go out on a limb and say that Toby Keith probably isn’t a very happy man today as word has leaked out that his ‘I Love This Bar’ at Destiny USA in Syracuse is in some hot water with New York State.

New York has sued Toby’s ‘I Love This Bar’ for not turning over sales tax revenue to the state’s Department of Taxation and Finance. Toby most likely had nothing to do with it and I’m guessing he’s not loving having his name tarnished.

A spokesperson for the New York State Department of Taxation and Finance tells CNY Central that Toby’s ‘I Love This Bar’ in Syracuse owes $189,392 in collected sales taxes for 2013. Ouch!

Toby’s ‘I Love This Bar’ opened in Syracuse in February 2013. Here’s Toby performing at the grand opening:
