Robert Brockman Death Cause: Robert Brockman, a multimillionaire software developer charged in the worst case of individual tax fraud in US history, passed away on Friday, August 5. HOUSTON, TEXAS According to a number of accounts, Brockman passed away at his Houston home at the age of 81.
Brockman, a self-taught software entrepreneur who created a system to enable auto dealers to operate electronically, had been defending against more than $2 billion in IRS charges of tax evasion and money laundering since 2020. Prosecutors claim that Brockman, who had an estimated personal net worth of $4.7 billion, had a $20 million home in Houston, a ski lodge in Colorado, a Bombardier jet, and the 209-foot boat “Turmoil.”
In Florida, where his mother was a physiotherapist and his father ran a gas station, Brockman was born. He was the previous CEO of Reynolds & Reynolds, an Ohio-based software company that offers solutions to businesses, and he had scores of patents registered. In 1970, Brockman established the first Universal Computer Services, Inc. (UCS) as a service bureau to cater to the needs of car dealerships in need of data processing services. He first worked from his Houston living room, where he also learned how to programme computers. Reynolds and Reynolds were acquired by Universal Computer Systems in August 2006, combining their operations under the Reynolds and Reynolds name.
In a 39-count indictment filed in October 2020, the government accused him of omitting $2 billion in taxes, as well as wire fraud, money laundering, and other offences. He had entered a plea of innocence. The alleged plot to hide billions of dollars in income from the IRS reportedly lasted for decades, according to the Department of Justice.
