There’s always room for new faces in the ever-changing tax world.


The National Association of Enrolled Agents proudly represents nearly 10,000 enrolled agents across the country. As part of its mission, NAEA is committed to enhancing the professional growth of our members through promotion, member support, advocacy, and tax education.

What is an enrolled agent? An enrolled agent, commonly known as an EA, is a tax practitioner who is federally licensed to represent taxpayers before the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) for tax preparation services, tax issues, including audits, collections, and appeals.

Enrolled agents have demonstrated competence in tax matters, allowing them to represent taxpayers before the IRS. Earning the EA license proves dedication and a commitment to providing the most knowledgeable service possible for his/her clients. It is not an easy test; it requires preparation and diligence, as any licensing process should. With hard work and a little support, however, you too, can earn this prestigious license. Learn how to launch your EA career in two ways.
