When it come to paid tax professionals, they are not all the same. In fact, enrolled agents (EAs), are the only federally-licensed tax practitioners who not only specialize in taxation but also have unlimited rights when it comes to representing taxpayers before the Internal Revenue Service.
Whenever you choose to work with an enrolled agent you can save yourself a lot of time and effort with tax preparation and all of the tasks that are associated with it. Enrolled agents are prepared to advise, represent, and prepare tax returns for individuals, partnerships, corporations, estates, trusts, and other various entities with tax-reporting needs.
When looking at the differences between enrolled agents and other tax preparers, an enrolled agent has earned the honor of representing taxpayers in front of the IRS, by passing a strict and fully developed examination covering individual and business tax returns.
In addition to the rigid testing and application process, every three years the IRS requires enrolled agents to complete 72 hours of continuing education to maintain their licenses. The National Association of Enrolled Agents (NAEA) raises the bar even higher– its members are required to complete at least 90 hours in a three- year period.
Every year there are a significant number of changes made to the tax laws and tax code. The IRS code sections is made up of over 70,000 pages. Provisions are added frequently, and older provisions expire. While others are indexed for inflation, making them change as well. Some of these changes are effective at the first of the year while others are effective on the date they are signed.
