I’m not aware of any require in any state that would ever require you to pass the cpa exam more than once.

Forms offer free CPE all the time. Why would you let your credential lapse?

Keep your CPA always

I know we all love the work from home (or do we?) but does anyone actually miss traveling for their consulting engagements and all the fun that goes along with it? The late nights at the office then the bar and random hookups and excitement and all that? Sure it’s a grind but I think I actually miss it too. Maybe I just miss seeing people at work or seeing people at all. I wonder if we’ll ever get back to that.
