Original Message (ID '47973') By Bill Simpson:
Look at and In general all the various "Forms" wrap a presentation style around the argument. That often means the result is not appropriate for further calculation, but can be used for pretty printing your display. So I am guessing if you try AccountingForm[x]+AccountingForm[y] you may get nonsense or errors, but if you just want to Print[AccountingForm[x]] you might get what you want.
