How to File an Ethics Complaint
All ethics complaints against an INCPAS or AICPA member should be submitted in writing. Letters of complaint should be mailed "Personal & Confidential" to :
Indiana CPA Society Ethics Committee
8250 Woodfield Crossing Blvd., #100
Indianapolis, IN 46240
202 Leigh Farm Rd.
Durham, NC 27707
Attn: Professional Ethics Division
In most cases the AICPA 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 the procedures of the Joint Ethics Enforcement Program require an investigation be conducted in a confidential manner and 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.
