Stopping Remote user from using remote printer

Does anyone know of a way to stop a user who comes in on an RDP through a Windows 2008R2 Serverconnection from printing to a shared printer at the remote site? We have an accountant who is always picking the remote printer instead of his local printer and printing huge reports on our color printer. All other users need to have access to this printer though.
Any ideas?

what about to set Deny to print in Security tab of that printer for that particular user?

I thought about that, the client is going to call in a couple of minutes and I am going to check and see how it is set up or if he will let me remote into it. It may just be set to "Everyone" full rights, guess I could add all of the users, allow them and deny him? Or could I just do an allow "everyone" and deny him alone and not have to add all of the users?
Thanks for your quick responce.

If there is a no other problem (meaning nobody else is complaining for problems with that printer) just set Deny for him (leave settings on Security/Share tab as they are just add new permission Deny for that user). Because deny has higher priority it will overwrite "Allow-Everyone" for that user so only he won´t be able to print
