An enrolled agent (EA) is a tax professional who has earned the privilege of representing taxpayers before the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) by either passing a three-part comprehensive IRS test covering individual and business tax returns, or through experience as a former IRS employee. EAs are the highest credentialed tax professionals authorized to practice before the IRS.
EAs can provide a wide range of tax services to individuals and businesses, including:
If you are being audited or corresponding with the IRS, it is highly recommended that you work with an EA. EAs have the knowledge and experience to represent you before the IRS and protect your rights. Here are some of the benefits of working with an EA:
Having a debt with the IRS is more common than you think! You are not the only one and you are most definitely not alone.
Our Enrolled Agent, Sonia Arrambide, has been given the highest credential the IRS
awards by passing a three-part comprehensive IRS test covering individual and business tax returns and,
like attorneys and certified public accountants (CPAs), has unlimited practice rights.
This means that she has no restrictions as to which taxpayers she can represent, what types of tax matters she can handle,and in which state she can represent you.
Unlike the CPA credential which allows to work in non-tax related fields, the Enrolled Agent credential
specializes in tax law matters such as tax preparation and IRS representation. Mrs. Arrambide can assist
you in corresponding and communicating with the IRS on your behalf, represent you at conferences,
hearings, or meetings with the IRS, preparing and submitting a response to an IRS notice or inquiry,
negotiating agreements for the assessment of tax, and providing tax advice.
Working with an Enrolled Agent also guarantees that your rights as a taxpayer are being exercised as required by the standards in Circular 230, Regulations Governing Practice Before the Internal Revenue Service, which imposes an obligation on practitioners to exercise due diligence and to follow regulations relating to fees, client solicitations, marketing and advertising, and the management of client files and records. A violation of these regulations may result in sanctions, including censure, suspension, or disbarment of tax practitioners from practice before the IRS.
