As an enrolled agent, John now has the IRS designation of a tax expert with all the IRS’s privileges.

Gary Cerpovicz was caught completely off guard Tuesday morning when he went in to begin the food prep at his Quincy restaurant, Sweet Lorraine’s. He quickly discovered, much to his dismay, he lost a refrigeration unit and all of its contents, forcing him to close while he waits for a replacement. Gary said he hopes to be back in business sometime this week. Meanwhile, he apologizes for the inconvenience to his customers and to Bea and his staff, whom, he said, have been “just great and very understanding” through this whole unfortunate and untimely ordeal.
