What is an Enrolled Agent?

Professional Proficiency: The Enrolled Agent designation is given to individuals who successfully demonstrate expertise in the field of taxation by sitting for and passing the enrollment examination administered by the Internal Revenue Service. So stringent is this examination that only about 33% of those who take it are able to pass. Because of the difficulty in becoming enrolled and maintaining that enrollment, there are fewer than 34,000 Enrolled Agents in the United States. In contrast, there are 375,000 Certified Public Accountants (CPA’s) nationwide. Enrolled Agents account for less than 10% of all individuals currently practicing in the field of taxation.

Education: The Enrolled Agent title is the only professional credential issued in taxation at the Federal level. Maintaining the Enrolled Agent designation requires 72 hours of continuing professional education every three years. This education is narrowly confined in order to maximize an Enrolled Agent¡¦s tax proficiency. The education is closely monitored by the U.S. Department of the Treasury.

Specialization: Enrolled Agents are actually specialists in the field of taxation; able to prepare returns of all types. Enrolled agents are also authorized to appear on behalf of taxpayers before the Internal Revenue Service. Only Enrolled Agents, CPA’s and attorneys have this license.
