    5  certified public accountant licensed under chapter 473. After
    6  preparing a disclosure form, the certified public accountant
    7  must sign the form indicating that he or she prepared the form
    8  in accordance with this section and the instructions for
    9  completing and filing the disclosure forms and that, upon his or
   10  her reasonable knowledge and belief, the disclosure is true and
   11  correct. If a complaint is filed alleging a failure to disclose
   12  information required by this section, the commission shall
   13  determine whether the information was disclosed to the certified
   14  public accountant. The failure of the certified public
   15  accountant to accurately transcribe information provided by the
   16  individual who is required to file the disclosure does not
   17  constitute a violation of this section.
