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.
