CPE News 

Continuing Professional Education ("CPE") hours must be completed in the two calendar years prior to the year during which a license is to be renewed. The two calendar years are referred to as the "reporting period". For those renewing their CPA license in 2018 this means all CPE hours must be completed beginning January 1, 2016 and ending December 31, 2017. 
 
Any CPA who fails to complete the CPE by the December 31 deadline will not be eligible to renew his or her license. Instead the CPA will be required to use the reinstatement process.
