Is an inactive CPA license just as good active when seeking a competitive promotion. How about an inactive CPA in Maryland, seeking competitive promotion in California vs active CPA license in CA? The context is IRS Agent. TKS in-advance for any comments.

It may depend on what they want. Is the active license a requirement for the job? Even if it isn't, if it comes down to an Active License holder vs. an Inactive License, I think they might lean toward the Active.

Personally, I keep mine active even though its not necessarily required. Just easier all around.

Just my two cents.

In my experience, the IRS didn't seem to care whether I had a CPA or not. I am a former IRS revenue agent and a current CPA. That may have changed. Do you need it satisfy basic accounting requirements for the position?

TKS - basic requirements satisfied with accounting and tax classes....too bad CPA and law licenses are state by state and not nation wide like Enrolled Agent.

But CPA licenses typically can be used in "substantially equivalent" states (which is most states, and at least you can hold yourself out as a CPA) as long as you meet the criteria for your state of licensure. My license is in Colorado, but I now work and live in Indiana. Colorado allows non-residents to hold Colorado CPA licenses. Even then, I can apply for license by reciprocation in the new state in most instances. Yes, there's a couple of extra steps, but you can keep your CPA if you want in most cases.
