    I am compiling the info for my application and need a letter from my employer as well as 3 character reference letters. What do you have them say? Plenty of people want to say I am a character, LOL.

    Just a short & sweet ” I have known MLA for 3 years and find her to be of good moral character”. Does anybody have an example they’d like to share?

    I’m in MA and going for a non-reporting license, FWIW.

    I’m sorry, I’m not quite sure what exactly should get written, but there’s a lot of info on Google in general about character reference letters. Here are a couple of links that have info on it:

    http://jobsearch.about.com/cs/referenceletters/a/samplecharacter.htm

    http://jobsearch.about.com/od/characterreference/character-reference-letter.htm

    http://www.characterreferenceletters.com/

    I’m not sure what should particularly be for a CPA license applicant…I guess the good moral character thing…ethically responsible…serious about professional conduct…maybe something that happened that showed how truly moral you are and indicates just what a wonderful CPA you would be…

    Good luck!

    I just received my packet from the Texas board and I don’t see anywhere where it asks for reference letters. I guess I’ll email them to be sure.

    Thanks so much Acct! I am panicking over these as if they may keep me from getting my license LOL. Red I’m curious if TX requires them, I am still amazed by the difference between states!

    @mIa – I’ll totally write a reference letter for you! That being said, its just a formality. It really doesnt matter what the letter says. The exercise is just to see if you can get a few people to vouch for you.

    Yeah, California doesnt require reference letters either.

    Ha ha ha…I laughed out loud reading these posts…thanks for that 🙂

    Seriously, though, I don’t quite get why you need the character reference letters…If someone gets a negative character reference letter, can that keep him from being licensed? After all the studying and passing, education and experience, is that another way to weed out who not to license?

    well the other ironic thing is if I get to pick who writes my letters, of COURSE I will have 3 positive references. DUH.

    Interesting, my State had a canned reference letters that needed to be signed & notarized by 3 people.

    I guess there must be some reason each state has it’s own type of system in place for licensure…never heard of the reference letters for this before, though.

    Guess you learn something new every day…
