CERTIFIED PUBLIC ACCOUNTANTS. The Board of Accountancy can be vigorous when it comes to
enforcement actions against CPAs who it believes have violated the Agency's rules or the State's Occupations
Code. There are numerous statutory and administrative prohibitions on CPAs. Sometimes, even if you think a
matter has no bearing on your license, e.g. how and whether or not you should settle a DWI charge, the Board may
think otherwise. If you are ever the subject of a Board investigation, you should have professional representation.
You advise clients everyday they should obtain professional advice when it comes to dealing with the IRS. You
should do the same when it comes to defending your license. The Board has a staff of attorneys; you should have
one too. Don't try to face the Board by yourself. As an attorney who has worked in the enforcement section of the
State Board of Accountancy, Wilfred Navarro can help. As a CPA, he understands. Give him a call!

outline of what is being argued.

|The Board of Accountancy has initiated a disciplinary proceeding against a licensee wherein it
charges the licensee was in derogation of Board rules that encompass GAAP/GAAS. In
essence, the licensee issued an opinion that the client's financial statements fairly
represented the client's financial position as of the date issued; the Board's expert disagrees.
The TEXAS ASSOCIATION OF CERTIFIED PUBLIC ACCOUNTANTS has filed a brief with the
court supporting the licensee's contention that Auditing Standards are unconstitutionally
vague when used as a basis for quasi-criminal sanctions against a CPA.

OPINION DIFFERS FROM THAT OF A BOARD EXPERT?

|I'M NOT A CPA, SHOULD I
BE CONCERNED ABOUT
THE MATTER TO THE LEFT?
Perhaps. Different State
Boards have differing
standards of professional
conduct for licensees.
Depending upon what
standard the licensing board
that regulates your profession
uses, similar arguments might
be made when accusing you
of misconduct. Read the
