2020 Continuing Professional Education (CPE):
The Oklahoma Accountancy Board (OAB) has not approved any deferments or extensions for continuing professional education (CPE) this year. Registrants have until December 31, 2020, to complete CPE hours for calendar year 2020.
As a reminder, the OAB does not have a limit on online self-study learning activities (self-paced), however, these types of courses must be offered through a NASBA-registered provider, or taken through the Oklahoma Society of CPAs or the American Institute of CPAs. Furthermore, many providers have moved to a virtual delivery method, including webinars and webcasts. Because these types of activities include a “live” element, these provider are not required to be registered with NASBA.
As always we will continue to monitor the situation and provide updates to our registrants if there are changes to this plan.

IRS PTIN INFORMATION
The IRS has advised the Oklahoma Accountancy Board to inform its registrants to use December 31, 2020 as the date their license will expire for purposes of renewing their PTIN for the coming tax season. With permits expiring based upon birth month, the IRS recognizes this could cause issues in their system. This is the same guidance given for the 2019 tax filing period.
