What is an enrolled agent?

Enrolled agents (EAs) are America’s tax experts. They are the only federally-licensed tax practitioners who both specialize in taxation and have unlimited rights to represent taxpayers before the Internal Revenue Service. These tax specialists have earned the privilege of representing taxpay­ers before the IRS by either passing a stringent and com­prehensive three-part examination covering individual tax returns; business tax returns; and, representation, practice and procedure – or through relevant experience as a former IRS em­ployee. All candidates are subjected to a rigorous background check conducted by the IRS.
