What is an Enrolled Agent?

An Enrolled Agent is a federally licensed tax practitioner who has technical
expertise in the field of taxation and who is empowered by the Department of
the Treasury to represent taxpayers before all administrative levels of the
IRS for audits, collections and appeals.

Unlike attorneys and CPAs who may not choose to specialize in taxes, all
EA’s specialize in taxation and are the only taxpayer representatives who
receive their credentials from the US Government by passing comprehensive
examinations. They are also the only tax professionals that may represent
clients in any part of the country.

Enrolled Agents provide tax preparation, representation, tax planning and
other financial services to millions of individual and business taxpayers.
EAs adhere to a code of ethics and professional conduct and are required by
the IRS to complete annual continuing professional education.

Like attorneys and certified public accountants (CPAs), Enrolled Agents are
governed by Treasury Circular 230 in their practice before the IRS.
