What is an Enrolled Agent?

First, an Enrolled Agent is not an employee of the IRS or any government agency. Enrolled Agent means that the individual is "enrolled" with the IRS to act as an "agent" for the taxpayer. EAs are one of only three categories of people authorized by the Treasury Department to represent all classes of taxpayers before any administrative level of the IRS, the others being CPAs and Attorneys.

EAs earn the credential by passing an extensive two-day exam on tax laws. Administered by the IRS, it is a difficult exam with only about 30% of applicants passing each year. In addition, there is a significant continuing education requirement.

These exams cover the financial planning process, insurance, investments, tax law, pension plans, and estate planning.

Professionals meeting the educational, experience, and ethical standards established by the Certified Financial Planner Board of Standards are licensed and authorized to use the CFP mark.
