These adjectives share the meaning obliged to answer, as for one's actions, to an authority that may impose a penalty for failure.

Liable may refer to a legal obligation, as to pay damages or to perform jury duty: Wage earners are liable to income tax. Accountable especially emphasizes giving an account of one's discharge of a responsibility: “The liberal philosophy holds that enduring governments must be accountable to someone beside themselves” (Walter Lippmann). Amenable implies being subject to the control of an authority and therefore the absence of complete autonomy: “There is no constitutional tribunal to which [the king] is amenable” (Alexander Hamilton).See Also Synonyms at reliable.
