What is an Enrolled Agent?
Enrolled Agents are federally authorized tax practitioners who have demonstrated technical competence in tax law and are the only taxpayer representatives licensed to practice by the United States government. Only EA’s, Attorneys and CPA’s may represent taxpayers without limitation before the IRS. EA’s advise and represent taxpayers before the IRS who are being examined, taxpayers who are unable to pay, and taxpayers who wish to recover penalties. EA’s prepare tax returns for individuals, partnerships, corporations, estates, trusts and any other entities with tax-reporting requirements.
Unlike Attorneys and CPA’s, who may or may not choose to specialize in taxes, all EA’s specialize in taxation and are required by the federal government to maintain their professional skills with continuing professional education.
