Enrolled Agents

What is an “Enrolled Agent” and why does it matter to me?

From the IRS Web site… “An enrolled agent is a person who has earned the privilege of practicing, that is, representing taxpayers, before the Internal Revenue Service. Enrolled agents, like attorneys and certified public accountants (CPAs), are unrestricted as to which taxpayers they can represent, what types of tax matters they can handle, and which IRS offices they can practice before.”

Enrolled Agents (also referred to as EAs) can be your best friends when you’re attempting to resolve problems with the IRS.  Not only are EAs extremely well-versed in tax law, they are extremely familiar with communicating with the people inside the IRS.  With your permission EAs can speak to the IRS on your behalf in order to bring swift understanding and resolution to lingering tax problems.
