Extension of the Two-Year Carryover Period for ...

The IRS officially announces that EA candidates now have up to THREE years to carry over their passing scores (due to the COVID pandemic).

Generally, candidates who pass a part of the examination can carry over a passing score up to two years from the date they passed that part of the examination. To provide candidates flexibility in testing because of the 2020 global pandemic, the two-year period is extended to three years. This applies to any examination parts that had not expired as of February 29, 2020 and any examination parts passed on June 1, 2020 and later.

For example, assume a candidate passed Part 1 on November 15, 2019. Subsequently, the candidate passed Part 2 on February 15, 2020. That candidate has until November 15, 2022 to pass the remaining part. Otherwise, the candidate loses credit for Part 1. The candidate has until February 15, 2023 to pass all other parts of the examination or will lose credit for Part 2.
