I live and work in NY and I passed the CPA exam, but even though I have 8 years of consulting and tax preparation experience, almost none of it was under direct supervision of a CPA, so it doesn't count towards my CPA license.
NH allows consulting experience like this if it is evaluated and verified by NASBA, which I can get done. There is no residency requirement for a CPA license in NH.
Question: Should I get licensed in NH? I'm not planning on living or practicing there, but I do work in tax prep in NY every tax season.
AUD - 78 BEC - 85 FAR - 76 REG - 77
Done with the exam, just need verified experience now
To be honest, it will depends on several factor
– If you are planning to switch career or stay in tax
– If the license will bring you to a higher value
– If you think you will need it in the future
– If you just want it for good looking aka “the title”
If you can't decided, you can just spend $$ to solve the problem aka get it. Check the NH status, in NY you are able to keep your title even if your CPA license became inactive.
