Reinstate CPA-Inactive Certificate

CPA-Inactive Certificate

Only individuals whose CPA-Inactive certificate lapsed on or after July 1, 2001, may reinstate a CPA-Inactive certificate. To reinstate your expired CPA-Inactive certificate, you need to:

  1. Complete four hours of Continuing Professional Education (CPE) in Board approved ethics and regulations within the six-months before you submit your application.
  2. Log your CPE into the "Track CPE" tool located in your online services account.
  3. Submit a complete application with the fee and CPE documentation using your online services account.

To reinstate a suspended or revoked CPA-Inactive certificate, you must also:

  1. Provide reasons why the Board should reinstate your CPA-Inactive certificate
  2. Provide letters of recommendation from two licensed CPAs who have personal knowledge of your activities since the suspension or revocation of your CPA-Inactive certificate

The Board may ask for additional information.

You may not use the title CPA-Inactive until your name is posted on the Board's Licensee Search.

If your certificate expired prior to June 30, 2001, your only option is to apply for a CPA license. Please use the form “License Application for Individuals Holding a Lapsed Certificate.”
