On March 16th, 2021 I officially became an Enrolled Agent. I am pretty excited about this as I can now add tax resolution to the services I offer.
I have gotten asked many times what an Enrolled Agent is.
The Enrolled Agent Designation is the highest credential issued by the IRS. Enrolled Agents, right next to and alongside of attorneys and CPAs, are the only tax professionals with unlimited representation rights. We can represent any client on any matter before the IRS, even if we didn't prepare or have any part of the preparation of the tax return that is involved.
To obtain this designation, I had to study and take 3 tests. Each test had 100 questions.
Test 1 covered Individual tax returns. This included Estate, Gift, and Final tax returns. There were 12 chapters of information I had to study.
Test 2 covered Business tax returns. This included Sole Proprietor, Partnerships, Qualified Joint Venture, Corporations, and LLCs. Even though there were only 6 chapters, this part had the most information that I had to learn. This caused me quite a bit of stress as I studied because there was so much to remember and so much that could I could have been quizzed on. I was thrilled when I passed this part.
Test 3 covered Representation. This part only had 4 chapters but was the hardest for me to study for because it had a lot of memorizing of items I don't use in my practice every day. It covered preparing returns, practice before the IRS, representation before the IRS, and tax law.
I am happy to be able to help taxpayers with their IRS problems.
