What is an Enrolled Agent?

An Enrolled Agent (EA) is a tax professional who has taken a three-part comprehensive exam administered by the Internal Revenue Service in all phases of tax law and administration.

Established in 1884 by an act of Congress (Enabling Act of 1884 or The Horse Act of 1884) these individuals may represent taxpayers (individuals, business and estates) on audits, appeals and collection before the IRS and the US Treasury. Many also represent individuals before state tax agencies.

Bound by Circular 230 regulations of the US Tax Code, Enrolled Agents must take annual continuing education based solely on tax law. They are also the only tax professional who must be thoroughly investigated by the Internal Revenue Service prior to licensing.

Enrolled Agents may practice in any state, territory or commonwealth of the United States without further exam requirements. If they lose their license, it’s gone. No moving to another state to be relicensed. That is why many uphold a strict code of ethics.


“Closers” have run their numbers, and they know that certain IRS problems can net them big fees. Sure, they’ll quote you a smaller fee during the so-called “financial analysis” in the beginning stages of the process – but they also know that there are lots of different ways that they can tack on additional fees during the process so that, no matter what, they’ll get paid.

My team and I would like to invite you into a different kind of process.

Mind you – we are BULLDOGS when it comes to negotiating on behalf of our clients in front of the IRS. We have plenty of stories to prove it.

We want to fight for you – and you will never have to speak with the IRS yourself.

PS — If you are discussing your tax situation over the telephone with other firms, be sure to ask them one important question:

“Are you a licensed tax professional that is legally eligible to offer me tax advice, or are you a salesman?”

This is by far the single most important question you should ask anybody trying to offer you tax advice. If they are a salesperson, I highly encourage you to run quickly in the opposite direction.

PPS – Already ready to come in?

I don’t blame you…many folks are fed up with the other options out there. Our schedule is very full…but if you call us at (910) 796-0099 or Email Us, we’ll give you two options for coming in right away! We will NOT make dealing with a tax professional as painful as it’s been in the past!
