CPAs must consider if they remain on active status or inactive status. CPAs are required to have “active status” if they prepare tax returns for a public accounting firm; they issue compilation reports other than through a CPA firm; or they work for a State Legislature
Auditor. Inactive status may mean they simply went to work for a corporate organization or do not meet the state requirements for annual education credits for that year. You must refer to the individual states to understand requirements since they vary.
Admission to the Bar in the United States is the granting or permission by a particular court to practice law in that court. Each state has its own rules and sets it rules for that state or federal jurisdiction. A lawyer who is admitted in one state is not automatically allowed to practice in any other. Some states have reciprocal agreements that allow attorneys from other states to practice without sitting for another full bar exam; such agreements differ significantly among the states.
