Just what the heck is an Enrolled Agent (EA)? Well, let's start with how the IRS defines an Enrolled Agent:
"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."
(For those interested in seeing the rules and regulations that govern EAs and their conduct, see Treasury
In simpler terms, EAs could be considered America's tax experts! Unlike most attorneys and CPAs,
EAs tend to deal strictly with tax law and act as "lawyers" when representing taxpayers before the IRS.
EAs specialize in tax preparation, tax planning, and representation before the IRS.
In most cases, you will get free tax planning when you get your taxes prepared at Refund R Us. However,
we can also provide taxpayer representation, even if we didn't prepare your original tax returns.
Why would you need representation? Technically, you don't! You can represent yourself before the IRS
just like you can represent yourself in a court of law. But, sometimes it's better to have to someone speak
for you, especially if that someone is experienced in tax law and the due process rights of taxpayers. Also,
the IRS will likely give more priority to a taxpayer represented by a professional, like an EA, just like a
judge will likely give more priority to a plaintiff/defendant represented by an attorney.
