Fingerprinting Exemptions
The deadline for Texas CPAs to complete the fingerprint-based background check is August 31, 2022. Texas CPAs residing outside of the state and Texas CPAs that have a CPE exemption are still required to be fingerprinted. The only exemption from fingerprinting is to be eligible for and claim a retired or disabled license status with the Board prior to the August 31, 2022 deadline.
To check your fingerprinting status or learn how to complete this requirement, simply follow the instructions on your account page after logging into Online Services on the TSBPA website. Please refer to the Frequently Asked Questions page for more information.

Licensees who hold the retired or disabled status with the Board do not need to get fingerprinted, unless they seek reinstatement.

Fee Decrease
Effective September 1, 2021, the overall license renewal fee will be reduced from $75 to $70. The revised $70 fee includes the individual license fee of $60 (decreased from $65), plus the legislatively mandated $10 fee for the fifth-year accounting students scholarship program. The Board is self-sustaining. All direct and indirect costs must be paid from what it collects in license renewal fees, firm registrations, exam fees, sponsor registrations, and other collections.
The following table can be used as a general guide, but your individual fees may vary depending on your specific circumstances, the timing of your previous payments, and your current status with the Board. Please refer to Online Services for Individuals to check your specific status.
