Enrolled Agent

An enrolled agent (EA) is a federally-authorized tax practitioner who has technical expertise in the field of taxation and who is empowered by the U.S. Department of the Treasury to represent taxpayers before all administrative levels - examination, collection, and appeals - of the Internal Revenue Service.  In addition to taxpayer representation, enrolled agents often provide tax consultation services and prepare a wide range of federal and state tax returns. Unlike CPAs and tax attorneys, Enrolled Agents are tested directly by the IRS, and enrolled agents focus exclusively on tax accounting.

Enrolled Agents are needed in small and large public accounting firms, law firms, corporate accounting departments, state departments of revenue, investment firms, banks and in private practice. Enrolled Agents hold a federal license and have an unrestricted right to represent any taxpayer in any state.  There are no prior educational or professional experience prerequisites for this course.  The course has been designed to help participants learn about various aspects of the Internal Revenue Code, tax preparation/representation and prepare for the Enrolled Agent Exam.
