Board of Accountancy: Program Information

Karen Phelan, Program Director

The Colorado Board of Accountancy regulates certified public accountants (CPAs). CPAs perform a variety of accounting services and will often have the CPA designation 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, including the Public Accountants Society and the Colorado Society of CPAs.

Colorado participates in, a national database of licensed CPAs and CPA firms. Visit to determine the credentials of a CPA or CPA firm without searching each of the 55 Boards of Accountancy.

Tax preparers and enrolled agents are regulated by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). If you'd like to file a complaint about a tax preparer or enrolled agent, please contact the IRS.
