The Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation (IDFPR) notified the Illinois CPA Society this afternoon that the Illinois CPA License Renewal Portal is now OPEN!  Illinois license and registered CPAs should have received a renewal email this afternoon that included instructions on the renewal process.

CPE RENEWAL PORTAL-Receipt of a renewal email from IDFPR is dependent on the department having an updated email address of the licensee and/or registered CPA.   The renewal portal may be accessed at

RENEWAL INSTRUCTIONS-This year’s renewal will be a different process than previous years.   It is highly recommended that you access the instruction tab which provide an overview of the renewal steps.

ESTABLISH AN ACCOUNT-As previously communicated, CPAs will first have to establish an account to renew their license or registrations.   This is an easy step and should only take several minutes.

The Illinois CPA Society Government Relations Office has previously issued several renewal updates which provide comprehensive information on the renewal process.  See informational resources below.
