Enrolled agents (EAs) are America’s tax experts. They are the only federally-licensed tax practitioners who both specialize in taxation and have unlimited rights to represent taxpayers before the Internal Revenue Service. These tax specialists have earned the privilege of representing taxpayers in all 50 states before the IRS by either passing a stringent and comprehensive three-part examination covering individual tax returns; business tax returns; and, representation, practice and procedure – or through relevant experience as a former IRS employee. All candidates are subjected to a rigorous background check conducted by the IRS.
The Massachusetts Society of Enrolled Agents (MaSEA) is an organization whose principal concern is the honest, intelligent and ethical representation of the financial position of taxpayers before governmental agencies. Members of MaSEA are also members of the National Association of Enrolled Agents.
