Enrolled Agents are the tax specialists: individuals who are licensed
by the federal government to represent taxpayers before matters
pertaining to the I.R.S. Only EAs, CPAs and attorneys have this
The EA designation is earned by passing a difficult two-day exam
which covers taxation of individuals, corporations, partnerships,
estates and trusts, procedures and ethics. We are then subjected to a
rigorous background check before the EA status is granted.
All EAs are required to complete 72 hours of continuing
education, reported every three years, to maintain their status. Our
associates complete, on average, twice the required amount.
It is our company policy that all of our preparers be enrolled to represent taxpayers before the IRS.
