As a reminder, all licensed CPAs with a CPE requirement are required to earn 2022 CPE hours by December 31, 2022 and submit the 2022 CPE Report Form by January 31, 2023 or your renewal will not be valid and complete.  There is an Ethics requirement for 2022.

Expired Certificates

NOTE:  Licensed CPAs who no longer practice and wish to renew as INACTIVE status and be exempted from CPE should email the Board at with the following information – your name and certificate number for confirmation – in order for us to update the database. After the database has been updated, you must renew your inactive status online or by paper.  There is no application fee to change to INACTIVE status.

Please note that if you decide to reinstate to ACTIVE status in the future, the Board’s current reinstatement requirements include completion of 120 hours of continuing professional education within the past 3 years from reinstatement PLUS one year of work experience within the past 4 years from reinstatement which must be verified by an active-licensed CPA.  You should contact the Board at that time for information.


CPAs who no longer practice and wish to apply as CPA-RETIRED status and be exempted from CPE should review the information found on the “Forms & Links” page.  You cannot “renew” into that status – you must apply.
