EUGENE, Ore. (AP) - A former exercise studio in Eugene is facing tax liens, claims for wages from employees and an elder abuse allegation.

The Register-Guard reports (https://bit.ly/1FmSXt2 ) that Carpe Diem co-owner Shawn Healey shut down the studio earlier this month. Business records show that he and the company owed more than $120,000 in unpaid state and federal taxes and penalties.

Healey told the Register-Guard by email that he has been working with the IRS for more than three years to pay off his debt and put all the money from the liquidation of Carpe Diem toward that amount.

Former Carpe Diem client Sandy Jeremiah filed a complaint alleging financial and elder abuse. The 66-year-old says Healey strongly encouraged her to pay and schedule classes through the end of 2015.

She says he did not refund her for the remaining 10 lessons on her account.
