What is an Enrolled Agent?
According to the IRS: “An Enrolled Agent is a person who has earned the privilege of representing taxpayers before the Internal Revenue Service by either passing a three-part comprehensive IRS test covering individual and business tax returns, or through experience as a former IRS employee. Enrolled Agent status is the highest credential the IRS awards.
Individuals who obtain this elite status must adhere to ethical standards and complete a minimum of 72 hours of continuing education courses every three years.
Enrolled Agents, like attorneys and certified public accountants (CPAs), have unlimited practice rights. This means they are unrestricted as to which taxpayers they can represent, what types of tax matters they can handle, and which IRS offices they can represent clients before.” (IRS). As an Enrolled Agent, Ramona can handle all types of tax matters and can represent a client’s interests before the IRS. Because EAs are authorized to appear in place of their clients, Ramona will act on your behalf, without you having to be present.
Enrolled Agents are subject to a suitability check and must pass a three-part Special Enrollment Examination, which is a comprehensive exam that requires them to demonstrate proficiency in federal tax planning, individual and business tax return preparation, and representation. They must complete a minimum of 72 hours of continuing education every 3 years.
