Enrolled Agents are America’s Tax Experts
Enrolled Agents (EAs) must pass a comprehensive exam that requires them to demonstrate proficiency in federal tax planning, individual and business tax return preparation, and representation. The only other way to become an EA is to be employed by the IRS for minimum of five years, regularly interpreting and applying the provisions of Internal Revenue Code and Regulations.
EAs must complete 72 hours of continuing education specifically on taxation every three years. Members of the California Society of Enrolled Agents complete 90 hours of continuing education every three years. CSEA Members prepare nearly 2 million tax returns each year.
Enrolled Agents can represent clients before the IRS
EAs have unlimited representation rights before the IRS at all administrative levels. They can represent their clients on any matter, regardless of who prepared the tax return. Many EAs have completed specialized and intensive programs in representing taxpayers who have not filed, are under audit, or are having difficulty paying their tax bills.
