What is an enrolled agent? An enrolled agent is a person who has earned the privilege of practicing, that is, representing taxpayers, before the Internal Revenue Service. Enrolled agents, like attorneys and certified public accountants (CPAs), are unrestricted as to which taxpayers they can represent, what types of tax matters they can handle, and which IRS offices they can practice before.
An individual becomes an enrolled agent by filing an application with the OPR. He/she must pass the Special Enrollment Examination or present evidence of qualifying experience as a former IRS employee. A background check including a review of the applicant’s tax compliance is conducted.
The SEE is now a three (3) part examination that will be administered by an Outside Vendor. The SEE contains three (3) parts as follows:
Minimum 16 hours new tax law updates & 2 hours in ethics/Circular 230/Professional Responsibility for Enrolled Agents
