What is an Enrolled Agent?

According to, 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 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.

What does this mean for you, the taxpayer? If you receive a letter from the IRS that you don't understand, we can help you break it down and understand exactly what the IRS is trying to communicate to you and what the best course of action is going forward. With a signed Power of Attorney (POA) on file, we can respond to these letters for you. We can help negotiate payment plans and penalty abatements. We can attend audits on your behalf and file appeals if necessary. Let us take the stress out of dealing with the IRS. We are trained and experienced and are here to help you to obtain the most beneficial outcome with as little stress as possible.
