Lawyers Representing CPAs in IDFPR Hearings in DuPage County

Whether they are working with a business or an individual, an accountant must exercise a great deal of discretion and care. Financial information is often sensitive, and the complexities of finance laws and the tax code require meticulousness and attention to detail. To be able to serve as a certified public accountant (CPA), a person must meet and maintain strict licensing requirements. After spending years working to meet these requirements and build a successful career, the possibility of having one's CPA license suspended or revoked can be very distressing.

At Kathryn L. Harry & Associates, P.C., we understand the effort that you have put forth to establish your career as an accountant, and we know that a threat to your license is a threat to your family's financial security. With our dedicated attorneys on your side, you will be able to address any complaints and reach the best possible outcome in a disciplinary hearing.

Grounds for Discipline

The Board of Examiners, a division of the Illinois Department of Financial & Professional Regulation (IDFPR), regulates accountant's licenses according to the statutes of the Illinois Public Accounting Act. This law lists a number of possible grounds for discipline, including:

  • Dishonesty - Committing fraud, deception, or negligence while performing accounting services, or soliciting services through false or misleading advertising.
  • Improper payments - Paying or receiving any form of compensation for services which were not actually performed.
  • False reporting - Filing reports or records that are known to be false, or willfully failing to file reports that are required by law.
  • Unprofessional conduct - Any unethical actions which are likely to harm the public or any conduct that reflects poorly on one's ability to perform accounting services.
  • Drug or alcohol abuse - Habitual, excessive use of any substance which impairs one's ability to practice their profession with reasonable skill, safety, and judgment.
  • Illness - Physical health issues, including aging, which causes one to be unable to practice their profession with reasonable skill, safety, and judgment.
  • Taxes - Failure to file a tax return or pay required taxes, penalties, or interest.
