Correction

The answer to one of the CPE questions on Page 5 of the November 2020 Activity Review includes an error. The correct answer to the question, “I didn’t have time to take an ethics course in 2019, so I took a class in February and renewed my license for 2020-2021. Since I took a two-hour ethics course earlier this year, I don’t need to take another ethics class for the 2021-2022 renewal, right?” is “Since the ethics course you took in February was for the 2020-2021 license year, you must complete a one hour (50 minute) ethics course to be eligible to renew your license for 2021-2022.”

Uniform CPA Exam Candidates

Earlier this year, the Board extended the expiration dates for some Notices to Schedule (NTS) and Exam section credits. An NTS expiring April 1, 2020, through December 30, 2020, was extended to December 31, 2020. An Exam section credit expiring April 1, 2020, through December 30, 2020, was extended to December 31, 2020. The Board has not extended the expiration dates for an NTS or Exam section credit expiring after December 31, 2020. Contact Phyllis Elliott if you have questions about your NTS or Exam section credit.
