An Enrolled Agent is a professional tax practitioner who has technical expertise in the field of taxation and is licensed to represent taxpayers before the Internal Revenue Service at all administrative levels. EA's are the only tax practitioners required by federal law to maintain their expertise through continuing education. If you need up-to-date tax assistance, see an Enrolled Agent.

Do EAs work for the IRS?  (top)
No. “Enrolled” means EAs are licensed by the U.S. Treasury Department. “Agent” means EAs are authorized to appear in the place of a taxpayer before the IRS. Only EAs, attorneys, and CPAs may represent taxpayers before the IRS

 

How can EAs help Taxpayers?  (top)
EAs are equipped to handle the most complex tax returns for individuals, partnerships, corporations and other tax entities. And, if necessary, EAs are empowered to represent taxpayers before all administrative levels of the IRS. EAs are also an excellent resource for up-to-the-minute information on tax-related issues.

 

What differentiates EAs from other Tax Practitioners?  (top)
EAs are required to demonstrate expertise in matters of taxation before they may represent taxpayers before the IRS. Unlike CPAs or attorneys, who may or may not choose to specialize in taxes, all EAs specialize in taxation. EAs are the only tax practitioners who obtain their right to practice from an agency of the United States government. CPAs and attorneys are licensed by individual states.

 

Are EAs required to remain current In taxation?  (top)
EAs are unique as the ONLY group of tax practitioners required to maintain their credentials by earning (72 hours) continuing education in taxation, reported every three years directly to the IRS. NAEA members are required to earn (90 hours) which is greater than those required by the IRS.

 

Are EAs bound by any ethical standards?  (top)
EAs must abide by the Standards of Ethical Conduct contained in U.S. Treasury Department Circular 230. EAs found to be in violation of the provisions contained in Circular 230 may be suspended or disbarred. NAEA Members are also bound by NAEA’s own Rules of Professional Conduct and Code of Ethics.

 

What Happens If I Don’t File?  (top)
If you choose not to file timely, you could face criminal prosecution and other severe penalties for failure to file.
