What is an EA?

"Enrolled" means EAs are licensed by the federal government. "Agent" means EAs are authorized to appear in place of the taxpayer at the Internal Revenue Service. Only EAs, attorneys and CPAs may represent taxpayers before the IRS. The Enrolled Agent profession dates back to 1884 when, after questionable claims had been presented for Civil War losses, Congress acted to regulate persons who represented citizens in their dealings with the Treasury Department.

How does one become an EA?

To become an Enrolled Agent, a tax practitioner must pass a rigorous examination, demonstrating knowledge in the areas of individual, partnership, corporation, estate and trust taxation. To find out more about becoming an enrolled agent click here: NAEA
