What Is An Enrolled Agent (EA)?
Enrolled agents (EAs) are America’s tax experts, and hold the highest designation conferred by the IRS. 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.
