  • Notice of Public Comment on Proposed Rule


    The West Virginia Board of Accountancy filed a Notice of Public Comment with the West Virginia Secretary of State's Office on May 12, 2022.  The Board has proposed a Legislative Rule change to its Series 1 Rule - Board of Accountancy Board Rules and Rules of Professional Conduct. 


    The Uniform CPA Examination, published by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) is being restructured with implementation beginning January 2024.   In preparation for the examination restructuring, the proposed legislative rule change is to remove the required specific education subject area.  This change allows for flexibility and less restriction for an individual preparing for the Certified Public Accountant (CPA) examination.  Other proposed changes consist of updating certain accounting and auditing services definitions, and changing the credit date for any test sections passed within the eighteen months from the actual date the candidate took that test section to the date of notification of the passing score results.

    The Comment Period ends on Friday, July 1, 2022, at 5:00 pm.  You may file your written comments with the Board at:  

    Email:  Kristi.A.Justice@wv.gov or

    West Virginia Board of Accountancy

    405 Capitol Street, Suite 908

    Charleston, WV 25301                                         


    The Proposed Rule is available on the web site at:  Notice of Public Comment Period to a Proposed Rule


    The strikethrough language is proposed to be eliminated and the underline areas will be included in the Series 1 Rule.   If you have questions, please contact the Board office at the email address above or by phone at (304) 558-3557
