ICPAS LETTER OF CONCERN TO IDFPR

We are acutely sensitive to the technical difficulties some Illinois CPAs have encountered with the Illinois CPA license or registration renewal process.  As outlined in our previous seven license renewal updates, our lines of effort have been to coordinate with departmental leadership and communicate with ICPAS Membership.  With the impending deadline and ongoing technical barriers to successful renewal, ICPAS sent a formal Letter of Concern to IDFPR leadership.  IDFPR Secretary Treto immediately responded providing the resources outlined above.

ICPAS Government Relations continues to monitor this situation closely and will continue our lines of effort to mitigate these barriers and to get everyone across the renewal finish line before the December 31 deadline.
