What is an Enrolled Agent?
- Rick is an Enrolled Agent with the IRS. An Enrolled Agent is not an employee or representative of the IRS; he or she is an independent tax preparer who is “enrolled” to act as a taxpayer’s “agent” in dealing with the Internal Revenue Service. EAs must pass a very difficult test on federal tax topics and maintain an average of 16 hours of continuing education in federal taxation each year.
