The Accountant picture

New this month Factual error: When researching Christian Wolf in the IRS database, they state he made $75,000 and ran ZZZ Accounting. They then look up 3 other businesses with over a million dollars in income, said they were all partnerships and stated that Christian Wolf was managing partner. Given that partnerships are flow through entities for income tax purposes, all that income would flow through to individual returns, resulting in much more than $75,000 in income on Christian Wolf's tax return.

Suicide Squad picture

Revealing mistake: The subway station is identified by its internal signs as "Central" station, but as the Suicide Squad enters its exterior entrance, the sign above declares that it is "Bay St." station. Bay Street Station in Toronto is frequently used for movie shoots, as it has a complete lower platform which has been out of service for decades (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bay_ (TTC) #Lower_Bay).
