An enrolled agent is an individual who has been given the privilege of practicing before the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), which includes preparing and filing documents, communicating with the IRS, and representing taxpayers in matters involving the IRS.
There are two ways to become an Enrolled Agent:
- With IRS experience. The IRS looks at past service and technical experience in granting enrolled agent status to previous IRS employees.
- Taking an examination to show competence in tax matters.
