Beware of Email Phishing
The Minnesota Board has learned that a phishing message claiming to be from the Minnesota Board regarding "licensee fee changes" has been circulating. The Board sent no such message (and there are no fee increases). If received, follow the best practices at your firm for dealing with suspicious emails.
Renewals Open for Individuals (CPAs and RAPs) and Sole Proprietors
Renewals have opened for everyone except CPA and RAP firms. These firms should look for a mailing later in October, which contains information they need in order to renew.
- Active licensees and Sole Proprietor firms that do not provide services that require peer review and that do not have non-CPA owners should renew using Online Services.
- Inactive licensees renewing for 2022 must use Online Services. There is no paper renewal option.
- All RAPs and RAP firms must use paper forms.
- If you wish to go Exempt or Retire, or are seeking Reactivation or Reinstatement, see the separate (not Renewal) forms for those statuses/processes in the "Forms" section of the website.
Licensing and permit fees remain unchanged from 2021 renewals.
A reminder that if you have a CPE requirement (Active licensees licensed prior to July 1, 2020, and those seeking to change from Active to Inactive), you must complete and report CPE prior to renewal.
DO NOT ENTER CARRYBACK HOURS ONLINE. CPE entered online must be earned in the proper period. Falsely reporting CPE hours may result in disciplinary action (Minnesota Rule 1105.3000 E (2018)). See "CPE Reporting" for instructions on how to report carryback hours. See also the article below regarding the one-time exception extending the FY20 CPE year for those who need the extension.
