What is an Enrolled Agent?
An Enrolled Agent is a person who has earned the privilege of practicing, that is representing taxpayers, before the Internal Revenue Service. Enrolled Agents are required to pass a specialized exam given by the U.S. Treasury that covers in-depth & complex taxation issues, practice, and procedure rules. Enrolled Agents, like Attorneys and Certified Public Accountants (CPAs), are unrestricted as to which taxpayers they can represent, the type of tax matters they can handle, and which IRS offices they can practice before.
What is the difference between a CPA and Enrolled Agent?
“CPA” is a state certification. To obtain it, one must pass a rigorous series of examinations which cover a relatively broad area of accounting issues. The CPA is a highly qualified individual, and is licensed to practice only in the State that issued the license. There are more than 248,000 CPAs in the United States.
An Enrolled Agent receives his or her right to practice directly from the U.S. Government. The license is earned in one of two ways: by passing a comprehensive examination which covers all aspects of the tax code, or by having worked at the IRS for five years in a position which regularly interpreted and applied the tax code and its regulations. All candidates are subjected to a rigorous background check conducted by the IRS.
