New Mexico CPE Requirements

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

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

Sponsor Information: The Board does not evaluate specific courses or programs in advance of them being completed to determine eligibility for CPE credit. Board Rule 16.60.3 NMAC, Section 15, describes acceptable CPE programs. Any course offered by a provider registered with either the National Association of State Boards of Accountancy (NASBA) or the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) will be accepted. If a course is not approved by either NASBA or the AICPA, the Joint Statement on Standards for Continuing Professional Education Programs should be consulted to determine whether the course is acceptable for CPE credit

Pacific Northwest Tax School is approved by NASBA. Our tax education programs meet New Mexico Board of Accountancy requirements for acceptable CPE.

Renewal Period: Last day of licensee’s birth month.

Reporting Period: Triennial rolling cycle ending on the last day of each licensee’s birth month.

CPE Requirements: Public Accountancy Board rules mandate a minimum of 120 hours of continuing professional education (CPE) on a rolling three-year cycle. This cycle beings with the first day of the month after your birth month and ends on the last day of your birth month. You are exempt from continuing professional education during your first licensure cycle. Additional requirements include:

  • A minimum of 96 of the 120 hours must be technical in nature;
