IRS Agent Gets 3 Years For Cheating On His Taxes

LOS ANGELES (AP) — A Los Angeles-based Internal Revenue Service agent has been sentenced to three years in prison for cheating on his taxes and must repay $127,000 to the IRS.

Federal prosecutors say 51-year-old Albert Bront earlier pleaded guilty to filing false tax returns for himself and two innocent relatives. The former Santa Clarita resident was sentenced Thursday in Los Angeles.

The false tax form claims submitted by Bront included bogus alimony and mortgage deductions.

Bront acknowledged that he filed fraudulent tax returns for himself from 2003 to 2007 by claiming excessive deductions and failing to report income. He also acknowledged filing fraudulent returns on behalf of two unknowing family members.
