Boards of Accountancy deal with enforcement issues within their own jurisdiction, enforcement across jurisdictional borders through mobility, and also enforcement issues arising from services performed by a board’s licensee before another federal or state agency.

For example, a CPA licensed in his home jurisdiction who performs substandard work before the IRS may be disciplined by the IRS. The conduct involved in the IRS enforcement action may also provide the basis for an enforcement action by the licensing board of the home jurisdiction.

As such, it is important to facilitate the sharing of information between the Boards of Accountancy and various state or federal agencies which deal with CPAs and CPA firms. Because the process for obtaining information differs among each agency, we have created a separate webpage to specifically address the process for each agency and provided links to those pages below.
