Enrolled Agents

Enrolled agents (EAs) are America’s Tax Experts. EAs are the only federally licensed tax preparers who also have unlimited rights to represent taxpayers before the IRS.

Enrolled Agents (EAs) are tax professionals with technical expertise in tax laws and Internal Revenue Service (IRS) regulations. They are fully authorized to represent taxpayers before all administrative levels of the IRS in a wide variety of situations, including audits, collections and appeals. All enrolled agents must pass an exam to earn the EA certification, and must recertify every 3 years.

IRS issues take many forms, and can arise even when taxpayers make every effort to follow the rules. An audit, tax lien or wage garnishment could jeopardize your future and your reputation, but you do have options, and you are not alone.

What is an EA?

An enrolled agent is a tax expert who has earned the privilege of representing taxpayers before the Internal Revenue Service, either by passing a three-part comprehensive IRS test, or through experience as a former IRS employee. Tax professionals who attain this elite status must adhere to strict ethical standards, and complete 72 hours of continuing education courses every three years. While most tax preparers may only represent certain taxpayers in strictly limited situations, enrolled agents are authorized by the IRS to represent any taxpayer about any tax matter. Don’t go before the IRS alone. If you or your business is facing a tax audit, our enrolled agents can help.
