A dentist in Florida has been indicted on one count of tax evasion and one count of failing to file a tax return, according to a December 1 press release from the U.S. Attorney's Office for the Middle District of Florida.

According to court records, Dr. Frantz Brignol reportedly amassed nearly $900,000 in tax liabilities to the U.S. Internal Revenue Service (IRS) between 2014 and 2020. If charged, Brignol faces up to six years in federal prison.

Brignol allegedly avoided tax payments by hiding money in his mother's bank accounts, trading funds overseas, and failing to disclose another bank account to the IRS. Although Brignol's income exceeded $200,000 in 2020, the U.S. Attorney's Office claims that he failed to file an income tax return as required by federal law, according to the press release.

Brignol's case is being investigated by the IRS and will be prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Hannah Nowalkj.
