Didn’t get your notice?

If you do not receive your reminder notice and need login information, did you move or change employers and forget to tell the Board?  You can click on the “Online Renewals” button above and select “Forgot User ID?” at the bottom of the ACCESS Your Account window.  Your User ID will be emailed to you after responding to the questions.  You can also reset your password in a similar manner by selecting “Forget Password?”


Expired Certificates 

If your CPA license has been expired for more than one year, please contact the Board’s office for information on how to reinstate an expired license.


NOTE:  Licensed CPAs who no longer practice and wish to renew as INACTIVE status and be exempted from CPE should email the Board at
sitemaster@cpaboard.state.la.us 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.

 

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.
