The head CPA, occasionally delusional with the secret desire to become a professional comedian leads his accounting firm, "The Accountants" in the competitive world of accounting and taxes. Not helping matters are his staff, a band of misfits unable to find work elsewhere in the accounting industry. The Accountant's office is a thriving environment for characters of dubious work ethics and abilities, although their resumes may not speak well, nevertheless, the accountants are gifted at creative accounting skills and tax returns that stay one step ahead of the IRS. Although their reputation precedes them, there is always the hope of finding talented college graduates and sales gimmicks that will lead them to riches and easy money. In the meantime, challenging times are facing the accountants as they vie for accounting work that will keep them afloat in the City of Angels.
