File a Complaint

The Professional Ethics Committee investigates complaints against MTCPA members. Complaints may be submitted in the following ways: 

  1. Send your inquiry via email to Allen@Montana.CPA
  2. Contact a member of our Ethics Committee
  3. Mail your complaint:

The Montana Society of CPAs
Ethics Committee
PO Box 138
Helena MT 59624-0138

MTCPA will conduct an initial review of the complaint and, if necessary, an investigation of the matter in accordance with the procedures of the Joint Ethics Enforcement Program. Please note that the procedures of the Joint Ethics Enforcement Program require that an investigation be conducted in a confidential manner and that the results not be made public, with the following exceptions: (a) if after investigation, the matter is referred to a hearing panel of the Joint Trial Board, and the panel finds one or more members guilty of violating the Code of Professional Conduct, or (b) the investigation results in a settlement agreement involving membership rights (i.e. Suspension or expulsion) and the member agrees to publication, the results will be published.

Remember, not every complaint will necessarily result in an investigation and MTCPA cannot open a case for investigation without prima facie evidence that a violation has occurred. So, please be thorough and descriptive in your complaint, should you decide to file one with MTCPA.

To determine whether an individual is a member of MTCPA, please call 406-442-7301.
