I don't believe his accountant friend is a cpa, either because he did not sit for the exam or was not smart enough to pass the exam. That means he can not sign off on financial reports which means he has limited understanding of them. In effect the guy is a bookkeeper.....

If you look on the IRS site he is an Licensed Register Tax Preparer. All prepares have to take a test and Passed by Dec 2013.. I seen his License he have passed the exam. I have been using him and his family accounting business for over 22 years. He is well diverse in taxes of all kinds. I would highly recommended him to my friends. Taking a test do not make you only shows you have the book knowledge.

A licensed tax preparer has go through a "rigorous" week and half training...hehe

Compare that to 4 years studying accounting and receiving a bachelors degree. Then working for a year or two as an accountant while studying for a difficult multi day exam with an very high fail rate in order to become a CPA.

I think that explains his friends inability to read an auditors report. Oh well... Another day and things will be back to normal and woods can move on to his next scheme.
