How to File an Ethics Complaint

Complaints against a CTCPA member may be submitted in email format or via mail to the following address:

CTCPA Professional Ethics Committee
716 Brook St., Ste. 100
Rocky Hill, CT 06067-3433

In all cases, the CTCPA Professional Ethics Committee reviews the complaint to determine if a potential violation of the AICPA Code of Professional Conduct may have occurred.  If the committee agrees that this is the case, the complaint is then forwarded to the AICPA Joint Ethics Division for investigation.  The AICPA would communicate with the complainant going forward.

All investigations are conducted in a confidential manner and the results of an investigation are published only if the matter is presented to a hearing panel of the Joint Trial Board and the panel finds one or more members guilty of violating the Code of Professional Conduct, or the investigation results in a settlement agreement that involves admonishment, suspension, or expulsion.

If an individual is not a CTCPA member, you may contact the AICPA Membership Department at 888-777-7077, menu option 2, to determine if an individual is an AICPA member.

Complaints may also be directed to the Connecticut State Board of Accountancy at 860-713-6100 or State Board of Accountancy, c/o Department of Consumer Protection, 165 Capitol Avenue, Hartford, CT 06106-1630.
