NAEA is the tax advocate's advocate.

NAEA’s Government Relations team, by maintaining regular contact with congressional leaders and key tax administration officials, works to ensure the views of enrolled agents are represented in shaping federal policy. It also provides assistance to NAEA’s affiliates as they build advocacy initiatives and defend the enrolled agent credential.

The Internal Revenue Code is large, thousands of pages long, and buttressed by an array of regulations, forms, instructions, and an Internal Revenue Manual. The temptation for legislators to tinker with the Code is irresistible. Enrolled agents stand between their clients and chaos. We have opinions, based on years of front-line experience, and NAEA Government Relations is focused on giving voice to those opinions.

Our staff works with elected leadership, committee chairs, committee members, and the membership more broadly to focus NAEA’s efforts. NAEA in turn, formulates these desires into strategies and actions, and serves as the profession’s definitive policy expert and liaison to Congress and the IRS

NAEA, under the leadership of the late William D. “Bill” Payne, EA, created in 2006 its Political Action Committee, NAEA PAC, the success of which has undergirded NAEA’s advocacy success and illustrates the seriousness of NAEA’s advocacy efforts.
