David O. Christensen was convicted of theft after misappropriating funds as conservator of his daughter’s trust account. He then had his CPA licenses in Washington and Oregon revoked as a result of the conviction.
Now, Christensen has been disbarred by the IRS’s Office of Professional Responsibility. He had requested to continue a limited practice preparing tax returns, but an administrative law judge declined, holding the seriousness of his offense to warrant disbarment. Christensen will be prohibited from all practice before the IRS for a five-year period.
