So one of the requirements to apply for a CPA license is 1 year of general experience. The problem is is that my current supervisor is willing to sign off for me, but I've only been working here for 9 months. Will the CPA board actually check my employment history for date of hire?July 9, 2019 at 10:16 am #2543733
I doubt they will, but I would operate under the assumption that they CAN, and you should anticipate that they will.
If this blows up in your face it costs you hundreds of thousands of dollars in future earning potential, and potential perjury. And your employer/supervisor is also rolling the dice as well.
I needed experience sign off and was tempted to skirt the rules, but ultimately decided the juice was not worth the squeeze.
I would be patient and wait out the full year just to be safe. Its not worth it.
NY uses the education department to process licenses, not sure on your state but if you are a recent graduate, those education records will be available to them, as well as a host of other public information that could jeopardize your goals.July 9, 2019 at 10:28 am #2543751
Yea i guess you are right. Thanks for the response. The problem is my last boss doesn't work for my previous company anymore and i think he moved far away. Would it be ok to fax over the form and have him fax it back to me? Or do i need to have him sign the physical copy in person?July 9, 2019 at 11:21 am #2543844
I think the supervisor should be the one to send the form in. That's how it works in NY anyway.
You can fax or email it to him, and then he can mail it in, or mail it to you and you can mail it in, if your state allows.
I'd try to stay as above board as possible on this.July 9, 2019 at 11:31 am #2543847

Anytime! Be Safe.July 9, 2019 at 12:53 pm #2544054
I have a dumb question but after you pass the four exams and don't have the experience requirement yet, do you apply right after passing the exams or do you have to wait until the experience requirement has been fulfilled?July 9, 2019 at 2:01 pm #2544255
You can apply and they will let you know which requirements you are missing in detail, and then you have exactly 1 year to fulfill the requirements otherwise you forfeit the application fee. (This is for California though)
