The forms/applications and other documents issued by the North Carolina State Board of CPA Examiners on this website are in portable document format (PDF). This format is useful for making generally accurate renditions of forms and other graphics that are not comprised solely of text. A free software program, Adobe® Reader, will read PDF files so that they can be viewed and printed by a person accessing the Board’s website. Acrobat Reader may be obtained free from the Adobe Systems, Inc., website. Most of the Board’s forms/applications are interactive (or fillable); an interactive (fillable) form/application allows the user to type in his or her responses to the questions on the form/application and then print the completed form/application. Please note that because most of the Board’s forms/applications require a signature, you must complete the form/application, print the form/application, sign it, and then submit it to the Board The user may also print the form/application and fill it in by hand. If you have trouble viewing or printing a form/application, make sure you have a recent version of Adobe Reader® installed on your computer. You may also obtain a copy of a form/application by contacting Vanessia Willett.
