For ISCPA members who have remitted their 2020 membership dues. Please read through the objectives to ensure you register for the correct version of this webinar.
Idaho General Ethics CPE Requirement: (for most ISCPA members)
- Starting the 2nd year of Idaho licensure (and continuing forever thereafter) Idaho CPAs must report a minimum of 4 ethics credits every 2-year period. These ethics credits can be general, regulatory, behavioral or state-specific - as long as the certificate states they are ethics of some type.
- Remember that Idaho has a “rolling two-year” period when regarding CPE. The oldest year “rolls off” and the newest year “rolls on,” where the totals of the prior year plus the current year must equal 4 ethics hours.
Idaho State Specific Ethics CPE Requirement: (for those that became licensed in Idaho this year)
- Within the 1st calendar year you become licensed in Idaho, you must report 2 Idaho-state-specific ethics credits (which covers the Idaho Accountancy Act and Rules). Your CPE certificate must state that the ethics credits were Idaho-state-specific ethics. This applies to:
- Applicants for licensure (exam, reciprocity or transfer of grades) – this calendar year.
- Those with a lapsed or suspended Idaho licenses seeking to be reinstated - this calendar year.
- Those with an inactive or retired license seeking re-entry - this calendar year.
- If you do not fall within one of the three categories above, you need general ethics credits, not Idaho-state-specific.
- Determine whether you need general ethics credits or Idaho-state-specific ethics credits.
