Welcome to the State Board's Online Renewal and User Maintenance website.
Expiration notices for non-renewal of a 2021 CPA license or 2021 Inactive or Retired Certificate are being mailed out March 1, 2021. Login and password information can be found on that notice.
Reinstatement fees have now been added to the renewal and delinquent fees for all expired licenses and certificates except those expired while in Retired status.
Firm Permits that were not renewed by February 28, 2021 cannot be reinstated online. You should download the "2021 FIRM PERMIT Renewal Form - Same Year Reinstatement" from our website under the "Forms & Links" page.
Individuals who renew their 2021 Active license should also remember to report their 2020 CPE in order to complete the license renewal. If you are not exempt from CPE, your minimum required hours for 2020 can be found on your Renewal Notice. More information and forms can also be found on our website under the "Forms & Links" page.
Visa, MasterCard, and American Express are accepted for online renewal fees. Electronic payments from your bank account (ACH or 'e-check' transactions) are also accepted.
Online Services (upper right) will allow you to create and/or continue/resume your renewal.
My Account will allow you to change your User ID, password, email address, and security questions.
Please review and update ALL information online.
Upon login, you may see that you have an "issue." These issues may include updating your email address and answering security questions (to see available questions, click on the down arrow next to the question). Answering the security questions and updating your email address allows you to access your account if you forget your password.
You can navigate between questions and change your responses upon review. If a required answer is skipped, you will be prompted. You will be able to print your responses at the review screen and print a payment receipt. If you wish to logout before you complete the renewal questions, your answers will remain if you choose "Close and Save". You can continue/resume your renewal when you login again.
If you have misplaced your login information, please use the "Forgot User ID?" at the login screen to request that information. It will be emailed to you.
If you have any difficulty, please email us details at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will contact you as quickly as we can. We appreciate your patience while we work with all of our CPAs and Firms during the renewal period. It could take a few business days for us to respond to your inquiry during this peak season.
