    are audited frequently. Romney did mention that he had been audited several times. Given that he has one of the top CPA firms, PriceWaterhouseCoopers, prepare his returns Mitt does not care if he is audited. He would not even have to attend the audit. It would all be handled by his tax accountants.

        Arthur Anderson was the Enron auditor and it caused the organization to be disbanded and 50,000 people at Anderson lost their jobs, because of the actions of five employees, along with all the people at Enron.

        PWC's tax group is a good as they come in the US.

            was that charging the company with criminal acts put it out of business and 50,000 people lost their jobs and many thousands their life savings. The criminal charges were later dropped but by that time all the damage had been done. The five people who committed the criminal acts were and should have been charged but there was no good reason to throw 50,000 people out on the street for the actions of five.
