Enrolled Agents (EAs) are America’s Tax Experts!

EAs are the only federally licensed tax practitioners who specialize in taxation and also have unlimited rights to represent taxpayers before the IRS.

They are highly recognized by the industry and consumers based on their high level of expertise and knowledge of tax law and regulations.

Like attorneys and Certified Public Accountants, Enrolled Agents are unrestricted in:

1.   Which taxpayers they can represent.

2.   What types of tax matters they can handle and which IRS offices they can practice before.

3.   The only tax professional licensed to practice and represent clients in all 50 states.

We all care about our client's rights to fair treatment by the IRS, but do we have the tools necessary to do what's right for our clients? There are so many qualified tax pros, but how is IRS to know? How can potential clients know? The EA license is a badge of honor that helps IRS and the public know our expertise and dedication to our craft.

If you are new to the business, you can pass this exam. There is no age requirement. There is no experience requirement.All you need is a desire to pass this test, and the ability to study for intense but brief periods of time.

We have a unique approach, and we will give you the confidence and the tools you need to pass the EA Exam.

Taxpayers will be able to find you online when you get your free listing on IRS.gov as an Enrolled Agent.

There are several sources of scholarships available and we will provide assistance in applying for them.  Call for details.
