Preparing your tax returns is not easy. Many personal tax returns and business tax returns are incredibly complicated. If you try to prepare your tax returns on your own or use tax preparation software, it may lead to many missed deductions or legal errors of tax law that cost you money or increase the probability of an audit. Complicated tax situations need someone with a deep and thorough understanding of tax law to be accurate and legal. If you try to fill out these tax returns on your own, you might make costly mistakes. Unfortunately, that could result in an IRS audit. Instead, what you want is someone with extensive knowledge and experience in all areas of federal income tax law.
An enrolled agent is a person who has earned the privilege of representing taxpayers before the Internal Revenue Service by either passing a three-part comprehensive IRS test covering individual and business tax returns, or through experience as a former IRS employee. Enrolled agent status is the highest credential the IRS awards. Individuals who obtain this elite status must adhere to ethical standards and complete 72 hours of continuing education courses every three years. Enrolled agents, like attorneys and certified public accountants (CPAs), have unlimited practice rights. This means they are unrestricted as to which taxpayers they can represent, what types of tax matters they can handle, and which IRS offices they can represent clients before.
