An Enrolled Agent (EA) is a federally-authorized tax practitioner who has technical experience in the field of taxation and who is empowered by the U.S. Department of the Treasury to represent taxpayers before all administrative levels of the Internal Revenue Service for audits, collections and appeals. EAs are the only tax professionals who may represent clients in ALL 50 States.
Enrolled Agents advise, represent, and prepare tax returns for individuals, partnerships, corporations, estates, trusts and any entities with tax-reporting requirements. Enrolled Agents’ expertise in the continually changing field of taxation enables them to effectively represent taxpayers audited by the IRS. EAs adhere to a strict code of ethics and professional conduct and are required by the IRS to complete annual continuing professional education.
