About Our Professionals

Enrolled agents, Tax Attorneys and Certified Public Accountants (CPAs) all have unlimited practice rights regarding tax resolution. Each specialty requires significant schooling, as well as strict continuing education to maintain their skill set, and to keep current with ever changing tax laws for both individual and business tax. All three professionals are unrestricted in practicing tax resolution, meaning there are no restrictions as to which taxpayers they can represent, the types of tax matters they can handle, and which IRS offices they can represent clients before. They can all represent taxpayers in Tax Court.

Enrolled Agent (EA)

An enrolled agent is a person with advanced training and knowledge of tax law who is federally empowered by the U.S. Department of the Treasury to represent taxpayers before the Internal Revenue Service. These individuals obtain this specialized designation 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. This select group of individuals can represent taxpayers at all stages of tax resolution. Individuals who obtain this elite status must adhere to ethical standards and complete 72 hours of continuing education courses every three years.

Tax Attorney

A tax attorney is a type of lawyer who specializes in tax law. These professionals are uniquely equipped to handle legal tax matters, such as settling back taxes, helping with unfiled returns, halting wage garnishment, undoing property liens and account levies, and coming up with compromises with the IRS. Extensive schooling is required beginning with a BA in either business or accounting, followed with 3 years of law school, earning their Juris Doctor (JD), with the final step of passing the state bar exam. Tax attorneys are able to represent both individual and business clients in front of the IRS at all stages of resolution.

Certified Public Accountant (CPA)

Certified Public Accountants must have a bachelors degree in finance, accounting or business administration with at least 150 hours of education, and no fewer than two years public accounting experience. CPA’s must also pass the intensive Uniform CPA Exam and continue to complete at least 120 hours of continuing education every three years. A CPA is much more knowledgeable and experienced in tax preparation then the average person a chain tax preparation company. CPA’s are held to high professional standards and subject to a strict Code of Ethics. Certified Public Accountants are authorized to represent both individual and business taxpayers before the IRS.

Tax Planning

Tax planning is the analysis of a financial situation or plan to ensure that all elements work together to allow you to legally pay the lowest taxes possible. A plan that minimizes how much you pay in taxes is referred to as tax efficient. Tax planning should be an essential part of an individual investor’s financial plan.
