After holding a public rule-making hearing on April 21, 2009, the Board amended the CPA exam section fees set by Board rule - WAC 4-25-530 Fees. Prometric, a vendor providing testing centers used to administer the computer-based CPA exam notified the Board of a forthcoming increase of its hourly fee. The Board therefore increased the section fees the Board charges candidates to take the CPA examination to adequately pay all costs.
The Board filed Rule-Making Order (CR-103) on April 27, 2009. The CR-103 will be available from the Washington State Register
The amendments will take effect on August 1, 2009.
