Maryland and 29 Other State Boards of Accountancy Participate in CPAVerify, a National CPA License Search Tool - Maryland Board of Public Accountancy


The Maryland Board of Public Accountancy, in a joint effort with other state boards of accountancy and the National Association of State Boards of Accountancy (NASBA), has launched a license search tool for consumers of CPA services.

CPAverify.org features a central database of state licensee information about Certified Public Accountants (CPAs) practicing across the nation. Maryland, as well 29 other state boards of accountancy, provides its public licensing data to NASBA to present through CPAverify.org. The website is free and open to the public.

Maryland is also one of seven states that provides permit/licensing data on CPA firms through CPAverify.org. The other state boards that also provide permit/licensing information are California, Iowa, Nevada, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Texas.

CPAverify.org provides individuals and organizations with a centralized way to conveniently and reliably research the official license status of a CPA in other states. This will replace the tedious process of conducting a search of each state board website individually. The site also provides a general license history for CPAs.
