Application of Intent

The Application of Intent may be submitted at any time and there is no deadline.

The Application of Intent is used to evaluate an applicant's education to determine if it complies with the Public Accountancy Act and the Board's Rules. It is also used to allow the Board an opportunity to complete a background investigation of the applicant.

The Application of Intent expires two years after submission to the Board, unless the applicant takes the CPA Exam within the two years.  If an applicant does not take the CPA Exam within the two-year period, a new Application of Intent is required and the applicant must meet the education requirements that are in effect.

The Application of Intent may be submitted under any of the following conditions:

NOTE:    By submitting this application you acknowledge that you are subject to the Public Accountancy Act (Chapter 901 of the Occupations Code), the Texas State Board of Public Accountancy Rules of Professional Conduct, and all other rules promulgated by the Board. Any violations of the Act or its rules prior to licensure could be cause by the Board to take disciplinary action against you as an applicant, candidate, certificate holder, or deny the issuance of a CPA certificate.

Section 551.11765 of the Texas Government Code, a subsection of the Public Information Act, directs a state agency to maintain all information in a license application in confidence and excepted from public disclosure. There are three exceptions; the applicant’s name, and the license number and status of any subsequently issued license.
Therefore, the required contents of your initial license application and any future license renewal will not be disclosed to the public. This includes the information provided to NASBA as a part of the application’s evaluation.

The Board takes seriously the safeguarding of private information about its applicants.
