Kirkeide, Kevin G. of Delray Beach, FL

Under the automatic disciplinary provisions of the Institute’s bylaws, Mr. Kirkeide’s AICPA membership was terminated, effective October 29, 2018. This action is based on the Florida State Board of Accountancy’s Final Order. Whereby, Mr. Kirkeide’s CPA license was suspended until such time as he provides to the Board satisfactory evidence of either having removed the designation “CPA” from his LinkedIn profile and any other advertising or reactivating his license to active status. The Board also directed that he pay an administrative fine and that he submit to the Board satisfactory evidence of having completed four hours of continuing professional education in Board-approved ethics.  This decision was based on the Board’s findings that Mr. Kirkeide violated Section 473.323(1)(a), Florida Statutes (2016), through a violation of Section 473.322(1)(b), Florida Statues (2016), by utilizing the CPA designation on his LinkedIn profile, while his Florida CPA license was delinquent.
