The California Society of Enrolled Agents (CSEA) is a mutual benefit, nonprofit organization whose Members are tax experts dedicated to the promotion of the Enrolled Agent (EA) designation & EAs as The Tax Professionals. CSEA is the preeminent Society for EAs & is one of the largest professional organizations of EAs in the U.S., with affiliates & associates in nearly every state & Japan. The annual Super Seminar� is one of the largest & most respected tax education programs in the nation. Together with the National Association of Enrolled Agents, CSEA maintains an active voice in both state & federal tax legislation & has contributed directly to many of the changes to tax laws & regulations over the years.

We Speak Tax | Enrolled Agents | The Taxpayers' Tax Expert | 'Top Guns' of the tax profession

EAs are individuals licensed by the federal government (U.S. Department of Treasury) to represent taxpayers before the IRS.  EAs differ from other tax professionals because they're the only practitioners required to demonstrate competence specifically in matters of taxation before they may represent taxpayers. They're the only taxpayer representatives who receive that right from the U.S. government - CPAs & attorneys are licensed by the individual states.
Enrollment dates back to 1884, when Congress acted to regulate persons representing citizens in their dealings with the Treasury Dept, after questionable claims had been presented for Civil War losses. EAs have earned the privilege of practicing, that is, representing taxpayers, before the IRS & like attorneys & CPAs, are unrestricted as to which taxpayers they can represent, what types of tax matters they can handle, & which IRS offices they can practice before.
Unlike lawyers or CPAs, EAs specialize in taxation.  Throughout the year they advise, represent & prepare returns for individuals, partnerships, corporations, estates, trusts & any entities with tax-reporting requirements. In California, for example, the more than 4,000 members of the CSEA prepare almost 2,000,000 tax returns each year. EAs' expertise in the constantly changing field of tax law enables them to be effective representatives when taxpayers are audited by the IRS.

Over the years, an average of ⅓ of individuals taking the exam have passed, allowing them to apply for enrollment & subject themselves to a background investigation. In addition to the stringent testing & application process, EAs are required to earn 72 hours of continuing professional education, reported every 3 years, to maintain their status. Because of the difficulty in becoming enrolled & maintaining that enrollment, there are fewer than 34,000 EAs in the U.S. In contrast, there are about 375,000 CPAs nationwide.

The California Society of Enrolled Agents requires each Member to adhere to a strict Code of Ethics:

► Members & Associates will, in personal & public life, strive to enhance the status of EAs & promote their qualifications to serve the public.
► Members & Associates will demonstrate honesty, integrity & objectivity in all of their professional actions & relationships.
► Members & Associates will continually strive to improve their competence by keeping informed & educated about tax practice & representation.
► Members & Associates will maintain the confidentiality of professional relationships.
► Members & Associates will support all efforts to advance the reputation & prestige of the EA license.
► Members & Associates will so conduct themselves & their practices that they remain in compliance with the most current provisions of Treasury
         Department Circular 230 & the NAEA Rules of Professional Conduct.

If you pay taxes & you're unsure what an Enrolled Agent is, here are a few questions to ask your tax preparer:
1) What makes Enrolled Agents the "Tax Professionals"?
2) How does an Enrolled Agent differ from other tax preparers?
3) How do I know I'm getting an Enrolled Agent & not just an accountant who only does taxes 3 (three) months a year?
Ask these questions to find the right tax person for you.
