D.C. CPA Mobility Law Goes into Effect

A law in the District of Columbia makes it easier for CPAs from other jurisdictions to practice there, the Journal of Accountancy reported. The Accountant Mobility Act of 2011, passed by the Washington, D.C. City Council, allows CPAs with valid licenses in U.S. states to practice in the city without obtaining a reciprocal license. As part of a national effort by the AICPA and other groups, California became the 49th state to pass CPA mobility legislation in September. Efforts continue in pursuit of cross-border privileges for CPAs under a “no notice, no fee, no escape” regulatory regime in Hawaii, Puerto Rico, Guam, the U.S. Virgin Islands, and the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands.
