April 15 was just days ago, a time to file taxes, something an IRS agent failed to do properly, then threatened to kill other IRS agents, according to charges filed against him last week.
Albert Bront, formerly of Santa Clarita, has been charged by a federal grand jury with filing false tax returns, helping others file false tax returns and threatening to kill tax agents investigating his activities.
The investigation of Bront was conducted by IRS - Criminal Investigation and the Treasury Department's Office of Inspector General for Tax Administration.
The indictment occurred last July when Bront was accused of threatening federal officers who had a search warrant to examine records at his home. The indictment maintains Bront filed five fraudulent tax returns. These returns were for the years 2003 through 2007.
Bront is accused of claiming excessive deductions and failing to report some of his income. He is also alleged to have assisted three other people in filing nine separate federal tax returns where deductions were overstated. In addition he is charged with having interfered with administration of tax laws by submitting false paperwork that said he had bought a house and deducted interest from payments made on it.
Finally Bront is charged with threatening special agents at the time of the initial investigation by telling them, "I'm going to kill all of you" during the search of his home.
Bront faces a maximum statutory sentence of 55 years if he is convicted on all 16 counts in the indictment, according to U.S. Department of Justice reports of the case.
