Because you got to protect the brand, man.
The AICPA "commends" Congress for a lot of things that it shouldn't, among them, dragging its feet on renewing the godforsaken extenders bill.
The AICPA reports that Excel's ubiquity in the accounting profession caused a bunch of people to suggest "use of Excel in the CPA Exam to create an authentic user experience."
I guess now that they're done handing out CGMAs to any CPA with a pulse, the AICPA really has to convince people that this is a real thing:
Smithers, fetch me my quill pen!
Great, y'all got me in trouble.
Smithers, fetch me the integrity.
Who the fark is the AICPA trying to kid here?
Because the House Ways and Means Committee was just waiting for the AICPA to chime in here...
