What is an Enrolled Agent?
An Enrolled Agent (EA) is a tax professional who has been licensed by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) to represent taxpayers in all matters related to taxes. An EA must pass a three-part examination and demonstrate their expertise in all areas of taxation, including individual, business, estate, trust, and gift taxes. They are authorized to advise, represent and prepare tax returns for individuals, partnerships, corporations, estates, trusts, and any entities with tax-reporting requirements. An EA can also represent a taxpayer during an audit or appeal of a decision made by the IRS. With an EA’s representation, you can be sure that you are getting the best possible advice to ensure your taxes are filed accurately and in compliance with the law.
Why an Enrolled Agent?
Enrolled Agents are the only federally-licensed tax practitioners who specialize in taxation and have unlimited rights to represent taxpayers before the Internal Revenue Service. They are the most qualified professionals to provide advice on complex tax issues and navigate the complex rules and regulations of the IRS. Enrolled Agents have undergone a rigorous testing and continuing education program to ensure they are up-to-date on all tax laws, making them a trusted source for all your tax-related needs.
What Can Enrolled Agents Do?
Enrolled Agents (EAs) are licensed by the IRS and are authorized to represent taxpayers in matters before the IRS, such as filing tax returns and dealing with collections, audits, and appeals. They can also advise individuals, corporations, trusts, or any other entity required to file taxes. EAs provide a variety of services including tax preparation, tax advice, tax planning, and audit support. They can also help their clients with IRS problem resolution and dispute resolution. With their extensive knowledge and experience with the tax system, they are often able to identify tax savings opportunities that may have been missed by other tax professionals.
Advantages of Working with an Enrolled Agent
Working with an Enrolled Agent has many advantages. EA’s have unlimited practice rights and can represent taxpayers before the IRS. This includes helping with tax planning, filing returns, and negotiating with the IRS during examinations and appeals. Additionally, having an EA handle a taxpayer’s case can ensure that they are on the right side of the IRS. An EA is a federally-authorized tax practitioner who has technical expertise in the field of taxation. They are experienced professionals who understand the entire process of tax filing and provide advice to taxpayers. This allows taxpayers to feel more secure and confident in their financial decisions.
Enrolled Agents and the IRS
Enrolled Agents (EAs) are also authorized by the IRS to represent taxpayers in matters related to the Internal Revenue Service. With the highest credential awarded by the IRS, EAs are recognized across all 50 U.S. states and are the only federally-licensed tax practitioners with the ability to represent taxpayers in collections, audits, and appeals. By becoming an Enrolled Agent, professionals can gain access to tools that are unavailable to most other tax advisors, meaning they can provide their clients with the best possible service when dealing with the IRS.
