FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

WASHINGTON, June 27, 2017 — The National Association of Enrolled Agents (NAEA) is celebrating the organization’s 45th anniversary in June 2017. Established in 1972 by five enrolled agents in California, NAEA is now headquartered in Washington, DC and has grown to represent nearly 11,000 members and 38 affiliates representing 42 states. Enrolled agents 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 either by passing a stringent and comprehensive three-part examination or through relevant experience gained as a former IRS employee.

“NAEA has grown and thrived for more than four decades thanks to the passion and perseverance of our members,” said NAEA President James Adelman, EA. “Whether you are currently facing a difficult tax problem or simply want to ensure your taxes are handled properly in the future, I encourage you to visit eatax.org today to find a qualified enrolled agent in your area who can help.”

“My staff and I are proud to represent America’s tax experts and to provide the networking, educational opportunities, programs and services that enable enrolled agents to excel beyond their peers,” said NAEA Executive Vice President Cedric Calhoun, FASAE, CAE.
