“Enrolled” means to be licensed to practice by the federal government. “Agent” means authorized to appear in the place of the taxpayer before the IRS. Only Enrolled Agents, attorneys and CPAs may represent taxpayers before the IRS.
Enrolled Agent Status is the HIGHEST credential the IRS awards.
Enrolled Agents 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.
Enrolled Agents specialize in taxes, unlike attorneys or CPAs, who may or may not choose to specialize in taxes.
Enrolled Agents are the ONLY tax professionals tested solely by the IRS on their knowledge of tax law and regulation.
Enrolled Agents must abide by a code of ethics, professional conduct and are required by the IRS to take continuing Professional Education. They are governed by the Treasury Circular 230 in their practice before the IRS.
