On May 17, 2012 the Texas State Board of Public Accountancy (TSBPA) approved a planned increase to both CPA license fees and CPA examination fees. Individual CPA license fees will increase $11 and examination frees will increase $5 per examination section.
This will bring the license fee to a total of $51, including the $10 fee in support of the Fifth Year Accounting Student scholarship fund. The new examination fee will be $20 per section.
The fee increases were approved in conjunction with the start of budget preparations for the 2012-2013 fiscal year. While the exact date for the increase has not been set, the change will probably occur in the fall of this year.
