Coudersport Man Pleads Guilty To False Claim

Coudersport man admits he lied on IRS documents

Sun Gazette

A 52-year-old Potter County man entered a guilty plea in U.S. Middle District Court Tuesday to filing documents with the Internal Revenue Service falsely claiming he was a certified public accountant.

Terry M. Chisholm entered the plea to the misdemeanor count before U.S. Magistrate Judge William Arbuckle III and faces a possible sentence of one year in jail.

A plea agreement between Chisholm and the U.S. Attorney's Office recommends probation in lieu of jail, and Chisholm remains free pending sentencing by Arbuckle after completion of a pre-sentence report.

Chisholm admitted in court that he had been paid fines imposed by professional organizations in both Pennsylvania and New York State for similar conduct.

He came to the attention of the Internal Revenue Service in 2007 while operating a business known as Chisholm Accounting Services in Coudersport. More...

I wonder if maybe he's done some work for most of Obamas appointees? Interesting indeed.

so I wonder what this means for those who use him as there accountant, do there taxes need to be redone or are they all going to be audited? I feel for all those who have him as there accountant, makes you wonder if your books are right or not.

you people are pathetic, did you even try to find out why he was certified up until 2004 and certified from 2006 until present before casting your stones.

hmm might be something as simple as driving your car a few weeks with expired registration or insurance due to an oversight something very innocent but against the law nonetheless.

I don't know the reasons behind this case. but I wont judge him till I know them.

A couple of months is one thing, but a couple of years is another and does he even have a certification now, looks as he got in trouble for this before. I don't see where the previous individual gets that he is now certified. I know the gentleman and he is a great guy, but there are alot of people who rely on him for there books and wonder how he can represent himself as something he is not. I don't want to see anything bad to happen to him, but we all have to abide by the same laws, no exceptions.

If you want to check to see if someone is currently licensed in New York or PA go to the following websites. You can also check for the disciplinary actions against them.

NY -

I think you'll find out how long and why he was not certified.

A Family Friend from the past said...

I am a long time friend of the Chislom family. I know all of them and on thing that I can say is that Terry has always been a trust worthy and honest man. And is it not true to say that all of us have skeletons in our closets. I do agree that what he did was wrong but as was said by someone before me None of us know the reason why this happened. Not just that I feel for his family and in away him. My prayers are with all of them as should all of everyone else's should be.

I had Chislom as an account starting in 2000. It seems he set up my business to profit from his business, he has ripped me from day one. Charged me $175.00 a month to do my taxes and didn't do anything for 3 years (my fault). Than he stuck me with 6 months rent. He doesn't deserve 1 year in should be at least 5 years. He has ripped off a lot of people. Bottom line, he's a crook
