What is an Enrolled Agent (EA)?

An enrolled agent (EA) is a tax professional licensed by the IRS and is the highest credential the IRS awards. This privilege allows them to represent taxpayers in matters relating to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), such as tax collections, audits, or appeals. 

As federal tax agents, they have a wide scope of expertise across many areas of taxation.

In short, a certified public accountant (CPA) is an expert in accounting. Tax matters are one of many specialties of CPAs. An enrolled agent (EA) is a tax practitioner who is authorized by the federal government. EAs are specifically skilled tax experts who are empowered to represent clients before the IRS and can handle matters concerning collections, appeals and audits.

What Does an EA Do?

According to the National Association of Enrolled Agents (NAEA), EAs are licensed to advise, represent and prepare tax returns for individuals, partnerships, corporations, estates, trusts, and any other entity with tax-reporting requirements. The profession is long established, having first been created in 1884 following fraudulent Civil War-era tax claims.

EAs are also qualified to provide professional tax advice, tax return filing, and management of a whole host of taxes including income, payroll, estate, retirement taxes, and more.

It is to be noted that both Enrolled Agents (EA) and Certified Public Accountants (CPA) are licensed professionals who can effectively handle the tax issues of an individual or a business. The primary difference between the two lies in the fact that the license of an EA is authorized by the federal government, i.e., the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) while the CPA license is issued by any of the 55 U.S. states.

This means a CPA has restricted authority to the state level whereas an EA can work across the country.
