"If you make a loss, you don't pay tax," he said. "I don't think morals come into it. I cannot remember any accountant being moral."

So true.

Sounds like this whole BP fiasco is going to end up with oil on the face of these beancounters.

No doubt. Just remember Enron and what it did to public accounting.

"If you make a loss, you don't pay tax"

He's right. Another good reason to incorporate; they get all the good tax breaks. Just imagine how many EIC audits the IRS is going to have to do to make up for all that lost revenue! *slaps knee*

I think Gazoo was having fun with this idea that accountants are not moral.

The accoutants can't change the tax law, and I thought the article was really sort of dumb.

However, I completely agree with Gazoo's attempt to irritate the accountants.

Crow, didn't you at least have a slight feeling apprehension posting this? A lawyer talking about the morals of another profession?

Crowe, if I was guessing, I would guess that BP accountants are actually tax attorneys.
