Enrolled Agents are America’s Tax Experts. EAs are the only federally licensed tax practitioners who specialize in taxation and also have unlimited rights to represent taxpayers at all levels before the IRS.
Our new RTRP friend Joe Kennedy found the RTRP did not really test his skills, and he is now studying to become an EA. It is definitely a worthwhile commitment to your career!
IRS is singing the praises of EAs on IRS.gov saying: The Enrolled Agent status is the highest credential the IRS awards. Individuals who obtain this elite status must adhere to ethical standards.
The “Becoming an Enrolled Agent” section of the NAEA website is chock-full of useful information to help you pursue this advanced credential. NAEA’s popular online program allows busy EA candidates to optimize their limited time through intensive review.
