Forms & Links


If you were registered in 2017, you may renew or reinstate your individual CPA certificate online for 2018.  Online renewal is encouraged for everyone.  See the “CPAs & Firms” page for links and instructions.

All licensed CPAs have to report CPE for the 2017 CPE Report year in order for your 2018 renewal to be complete and valid.  Instructions and CPE Reporting Forms can be found below.


Licensed CPAs who no longer practice and wish to register with the Board in INACTIVE status and be exempted from CPE should email the Board at with the following information – your name, certificate number, current mailing address, phone number including area code, and date of birth 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.


*** NEW FOR 2018 ***
If you no longer practice and wish to change to RETIRED status with the Board and be exempted from CPE, you can download, complete, and mail in the Application for CPA-RETIRED Status found here:  Application for CPA-Retired Status

  • Eligibility to apply and register in CPA-RETIRED status requires that you:
    • Be age 55 or older,
    • Have held an Active license for at least 20 consecutive years, and
    • Are no longer an owner, partner, shareholder, member, contractor, contractee, or employee of a CPA firm.
  • Application fee for CPA-RETIRED is $50.
  • If you apply and are approved for CPA-RETIRED status, you will not need to “renew” that status until 2019.
  • Both CPA-RETIRED and CPA-INACTIVE statuses are CPE exempt and do not have practice privileges associated with the status.
  • If you are approved for CPA-RETIRED and later wish to reinstate your license, you can do so based on the current Board rules at that time.


Individual CPAs and Inactive Status Registrants who cannot renew online can do so by mail.  You should use the appropriate form(s) below if renewing by mail.  Please note the Board’s office cannot accept any payment by phone.



Firm permits can only be reinstated by completing and mailing the form below:
