Tennessee State Board of Accountancy Announces Important Change to State Specific Ethics Requirement -- Effective January 1, 2018

The Tennessee State Board of Accountancy has aligned with the National Association of State Boards of Accountancy (NASBA) in the categorization of each field of study as technical or non-technical CPE.  Please refer to this guide when assessing CPE courses. For those licensees that utilize the CPE Tracking Tool, the platform is undergoing some modifications due to the change in the CPE Standards and NASBA’s Fields of Study document. As a result, the tracking tool may not correctly tally technical versus non-technical subjects.  If you have specific questions, please contact the Board office at (615) 741-2550.

Tennessee CPA licenses and registered firm permits may be renewed no earlier than sixty (60) days prior to expiration.  Licenses and permits expiring on December 31, 2017 will be available for renewal on November 2, 2017.
