Did my accountant screw up?

Long story short............. under my schedule e he put 365 days fair rental days when I purchased the property 8/20/14 and was really only like 120ish fair rental days. Now I cant use any of that income under Fannie Mays guidelines. I called my accountant right away when I found this out and he stated it had to be done that way because of new program or something the irs is using, taxes would not allocate properly or something. It has to say 365 fair rental days or I could not file my taxes properly. He tried explaining it to me but confused me.

Now my loan is falling though because they wont use that income and underwriters will not even look a the settlement sheet for poof that it is a glitch in the system... underwriter said to refile taxes and amend the return but loan is denied because of this and THIS HAPPENED 1 DAY BEFORE CLOSING after title work and appraisal is done.
