Where do I renew my accountancy license? What are the renewal requirements?

In order to renew your license, you will need to use the this link: Online Licensing Portal.



Even-numbered CPA licenses renew on December 31 of even-numbered years, with odd-numbered licenses renewing in odd years.  The Board will send a reminder to renewing CPAs prior to renewal to the mailing address on file.  Renewal of your license is not dependent on receipt of this courtesy reminder. Please make a note of your expiration date and schedule your renewal accordingly.
