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 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 prepare 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 agents must adhere to high ethical standards and complete 72 hours of continuing education courses in tax law 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 states they can represent clients in.
