Consumer Protection is our Mission.
The practice of public accounting encompasses various regulated and non-regulated services.
The Colorado Board of Accountancy regulates certified public accountants, or CPA’s. CPA’s perform a variety of accounting services and will often times have the designation of CPA after their name.
The Board does not regulate accountants, public accountants, tax preparers, or enrolled agents. Accountants and public accountants are not regulated by any federal or state agency; however, there are professional associations who may be able to assist you, the Public Accountants Society at www.coloradoaccountant.org and the other is the Colorado Society of CPAs at www.cocpa.org.
Tax preparers and enrolled agents are regulated by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). If you have a complaint you’d like to report about a tax preparer, or an enrolled agent, please contact the IRS at www.irs.gov.

The Division is now called the Division of Professions and Occupations, effective August 8, 2012. To help our consumers and licensees more readily locate and utilize our services, the legislature passed House Bill 12-1055 during the 2012 legislative session. Please note, the Division of Professions and Occupations will still be housed within the Department of Regulatory Agencies (DORA). Services the Division currently offers will remain the same.
Legislation passed during the Legislative Session impacts the Division of Professions and Occupations. The Division is developing an implementation process at this time. Please check back in the near future to learn about any changes to rules, requirements and important deadlines.
