Florida dentist pleads guilty to tax evasion

A Florida dentist recently pleaded guilty to one count of tax evasion and one count of failing to file a tax return. 

Frantz Brignol, DMD, was accused in December of amassing nearly $900,000 in tax liabilities with the IRS and failing to file an income tax return in 2020. Between approximately 2014 and 2020, Dr. Brignol evaded tax payments by hiding money in his mother's bank accounts, trading funds overseas and failing to disclose another bank account to the IRS.

Dr. Brignol faces up to six years in federal prison for the offenses, according to an April 5 news release from the Department of Justice. A sentencing date has not yet been scheduled.
