What is an Enrolled Agent (EA)?
EA's are the only tax professionals tested by the IRS on their knowledge of tax law and regulations and, because they are federally licensed, EA's are the only tax professionals that may represent clients in any part of the country. EA's provide tax preparation, representation, tax planning and other financial services to millions of businesses and individuals.
EA's adhere to a code of ethics and professional conduct and are required by the IRS to complete annual continuing professional education. Like Attorneys and CPA's, EA's are governed by the Treasury Circular 230 in their practice before the IRS.
