Denise is a Certified QuickBooks ProAdvisor, a Certified Small Business Coach, and an IRS Enrolled Agent. Denise was recently appointed a National Tax Practice Institute Fellow,® completing a demanding curriculum to effectively represent clients before all administrative levels of the IRS. While earning an EA license denotes competence in taxation and the right to represent taxpayers, Fellows have made the commitment to a higher level of knowledge and excellence further setting them apart.
As an Enrolled Agent (EA), Denise is a tax professional authorized to represent taxpayers before the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). Enrolled Agents are the only tax professionals tested and regulated by the IRS. An Enrolled Agent is licensed to practice by the Federal Government (US Treasury) and authorized to appear in place of taxpayers at the IRS. In addition to stringent testing and an extensive background investigation, Enrolled Agents are required to complete continuing professional education and adhere to a strict Code of Ethics. Because of the knowledge necessary to become an Enrolled Agent and the requirements to maintain the license, there are only about 46,000 practicing Enrolled Agents in the US.
As a business or individual taxpayer, why choose an Enrolled Agent over other tax preparers? Simply put, an Enrolled Agent is a tax expert specifically licensed by the US Treasury unlike CPAs and Tax Attorneys. An Enrolled Agent:
