WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A CPA AND AN ENROLLED AGENT?
A CPA, or Certified Public Accountant has a wide range of knowledge on accounting, auditing, business law, personal finance and taxes.
Enrolled agents focus mainly on managing tax arrangements for business or private entities. EAs specialize in tax-related subjects such as income, estate, gift, payroll, returns, inheritance, non-profit and retirement taxes. The duties of enrolled agents are limited to tax preparation services, whereas CPAs can provide these same services as well as accounting, auditing, financial reporting and cost reduction services.
HOW LONG SHOULD I KEEP MY TAX RECORDS FOR?
Keep records for 3 years from the date you filed your original return or 2 years from the date you paid the tax, whichever is later, if you file a claim for credit or refund after you file your return. Keep records for 7 years if you file a claim for a loss from worthless securities or bad debt deduction.
