NEW! Enrolled Agent Review Course

Enrolled Agents (EA) are tax practitioners licensed by the Department of the Treasury. The EA license is the highest credential the IRS awards tax practitioners. The EA is allowed to represent taxpayers before all administrative levels of the IRS: examination, collection and appeals. 

EAs have expansive career possibilities. Unlike traditional CPAs and tax attorneys, EAs are tested directly by the IRS. As such, they focus exclusively on tax accounting, which enables them to find employment in small and large public accounting firms, law firms and corporate accounting departments, state departments of revenue, investment firms and banks. Becoming an EA is also a path to self-employment. EAs who start their own businesses offer taxpayer representation during audits, they serve as tax consultants, and they can prepare the full spectrum of tax returns. 

This course has been designed to help participants learn about various aspects of the Internal Revenue Code, tax preparation and representation. It is offered as a review course in preparation for the IRS Special Enrollment Exam (SEE), which is needed to earn a federal EA license. Taking the SEE is not a requirement of this course. No educational prerequisites or professional experience is needed to take this EA Review Course. Go to www.irs.gov, then click on “For Tax Pros” then “Enrolled Agents” to learn more about being an enrolled agent and the enrollment exam.
