What Is An Enrolled Agent?

I attend a lot of events in the Denver area and most people who don't happen to work in tax prep, law, or accounting constantly ask me, "What is an Enrolled Agent?" or "What do you do exactly". Below is a brief definition of what an Enrolled Agent is, who authorizes us to practice, and what we specialize in.

An Enrolled Agent (EA) is a federally-authorized tax practitioner who has technical experience in the field of taxation and who is empowered by the U.S. Department of the Treasury to represent taxpayers before all administrative levels of the Internal Revenue Service for audits, collections and appeals.  EAs are the only tax professionals who may represent clients in any part of the country.

Enrolled Agents advise, represent, and prepare tax returns for individuals, partnerships, corporations, estates, trusts and any entities with tax-reporting requirements.  Enrolled Agents’ expertise in the continually changing field of taxation enables them to effectively represent taxpayers audited by the IRS.  EAs adhere to a strict code of ethics and professional conduct and are required by the IRS to complete annual continuing professional education.

Tax Resolution Service Important Step In Resolving IRS Debts!

The article below references several occasions whereby the IRS did not follow procedure when conducting a seizure. Usually when a seizure takes place the taxpayer has not complied with the tax code, ignored all deadlines and requests to resolve the liability, and if they had a power of a attorney or a tax resolution service such as Highland Tax Group, Inc. assisting them; the taxpayer ignored all requests of their representative as well. None the less, the article goes to show it is of utmost importance to have a good tax resolution service such as Highland Tax Group, Inc. helping you when you are facing the IRS. We know the procedures and laws the IRS must follow prior to seizure and if they do not follow the appropriate steps, we can keep seizure from taking place.
