Idaho CPE Requirements

Note: JavaScript is REQUIRED to log in and use this site.

Pacific Northwest Tax School programs meet Idaho Board of Accountancy CPE requirements. Final authority for CPE rests with the Idaho Board of Accountancy. It is the responsibility of each CPA to verify whether CPE programs and sponsors meet Idaho Board requirements. A summary of CPE requirements and website link for the Board is provided below.

Sponsor Information: The Idaho Board does not require sponsor registration. Idaho accepts providers that meet the Statement on Standards for CPE which became effective on 7/1/02. Pacific Northwest Tax School is a NASBA-approved sponsor of CPE and meets these standards.

Reporting Period: All active licensees are required to report their Continuing Professional Education credits for the preceding calendar year annually by January 31st.

CPE Requirements: All active licensees (except as specifically excepted in Rule 502 of the Idaho Accountancy Rules) are required to participate in a total of eighty (80) hours of qualifying education in the two calendar years immediately preceding the date the report is required. There is a minimum requirement of at least thirty (30) hours in any one calendar year, and a maximum of fifty (50) hours recorded in any one calendar year.

Ethics Required: Idaho has an ethics CPE Requirement for all active licensees. It is a rolling total of 4 CPE credits of Ethics included in (not added to) the rolling total of 80 or more CPE credits. Within this requirement, new, reciprocal, reinstated or re-entry licensees must show they have obtained 2 credits of Idaho state specific ethics CPE within the first year of licensure on their CPE report. Existing licensees may also include the Idaho State Specific Ethics CPE, but are not required to do so.

Self Study: To guide participants through a learning process, CPE program sponsors of self-study programs must elicit participant responses to test for understanding of the material, offer evaluative feedback to incorrect responses, and provide reinforcement feedback to correct responses. To provide evidence of satisfactory completion of the course, CPE program sponsors of self-study programs must require participants to successfully complete a final examination with a minimum-passing grade of at least 70 percent before issuing CPE credit for the course. Examinations may contain questions of varying format, (for example, multiple-choice, essay and simulations.) If objective type questions are used, at least five questions per CPE credit must be included on the final examination. For example, the final examination for a five-credit course must include at least 25 questions.

All Pacific Northwest Tax School self-paced online programs meet Idaho Board of Accountancy requirements for self-study. In addtion, our Correspondence Basic Tax Course also meets Board requirements for self-study.
