Why Utilize a Professional Agent?
The Profession has been regulated by Congress since 1884!
Enrolled Agents take a difficult two-day examination which covers taxation of individuals, corporations, partnerships, estates and trusts, procedures and ethics.
Enrolled Agents are licensed by the Federal government.
Enrolled Agents are required to complete 72 hours of continuing education to keep them abreast of any and all tax law changes.
Enrolled Agents are the only tax professionals who receive their right to practice from the United States government.
Enrolled Agents are bound by Circular 230, which gives them limited client privilege in situations where the taxpayer is being represented in cases involving audits and collections matters.
Enrolled Agents are authorized to appear in place of the taxpayer at the Internal Revenue Service.
Enrolled Agents are subjected to a rigorous background check conducted by the IRS.
Only Enrolled Agents are required to demonstrate to the IRS their competence in matters of taxation before they represent a taxpayer.
Unlike CPAs and attorneys, who may or may not choose to specialize in taxes, ALL Enrolled Agents specialize in taxation.
