Maryland, Minnesota and Colorado passed mobility legislation, joining the following UAA-compliant states: Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Mississippi, Missouri, New Mexico, Ohio, Rhode Island, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Virginia, Washington, West Virginia and Wisconsin.

Georgia and Iowa have also taken steps to achieve full mobility. Georgia passed a mobility provision, which allows licensees from other states that have a “no notification” requirement to enter Georgia with no notice. Iowa is enacting a statute that will allow out-of-state individual CPAs to enter the state without notification. However, the CPA firm will need to obtain an Iowa firm permit if it is performing reviews or audits.
