Question
Hello
i'm an accountant working for property management company.
Somehow I made a dumb mistake by making utility bill payment online from a different Account.
We have several different bank accounts for every properties and I paid from wrong properties' account.
Is it ok to give additional information about this error to my cpa when tax report, and will it be resolved?
Do you recommend any other option?
Please help!!!
Thank you!

Answer
Yes, I would tell your CPA about it.  

As to whether it will be resolved, I do not know exactly what to tell you - can you not just move the funds between accounts to correct the error??

If you are not a positioin to be able to correct the error, I am sure the CPA will do what's necessary. I expect that this is no big deal.
