Exam, gained your experience, and passed the Ethics Exam...you're ready
to apply to be a CPA! Before you apply, decide how you will use your CPA
credential. In Connecticut, there are two choices: you may register your
certificate, or you may apply for a CPA license.
Certificate Registration allows for limited use of the title "CPA." You may
use the CPA moniker on correspondence such as stationary, resumes,
personal checks and business cards. However, you are not allowed to sign
a tax return as a CPA or sign off on anything of a financial matter.
Certificate registration is a less costly option than a CPA license.
In Connecticut, a CPA license is required to open a public accounting
firm, sign audit reports and other functions, and allows the unlimited use
of the title "CPA." It is the most costly option and also requires you to
earn and report 40 hours of CPE each year.
