Have you ever considered becoming an Enrolled Agent? For anyone unfamiliar with the term, an enrolled agent (ea) is a person who has earned the privilege of representing taxpayers before the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). As is the case with attorneys and certified public accountants (CPAs), enrolled agents can chose, unrestricted, which tax matters and taxpayers they wish to represent, as well as which IRS office they can practice before.
There are two tracks, a written examination and IRS experience, to becoming an enrolled agent. These tracks are described in Federal regulations contained in a pamphlet known as Treasury Department Circular 230, Regulations Governing the Practice of Attorneys, Certified Public Accountants, Enrolled Agents, Enrolled Actuaries, and Appraisers Before the Internal Revenue Service.
Fast Forward Academy offers the necessary training, through their ea continuing education, to ensure that you will be properly prepared to demonstrate special competence in tax matter in taking the IRS written examination. An enrolled agent candidate must pass three exams before the IRS will allow them to practice as an enrolled agent. Over 81% of Fast Forward Academy students that pass all three exams do so on their first attempt.
You won’t need a college degree to become an enrolled agent, but you will need to demonstrate certain competence in tax matters. You will need to pass the three-part IRS Special Enrollment Examination (SEE). Details for the enrolled agent continuing education requirements are listed on the Fast Forward Academy website, as are study guides, practice exams, and a free online test bank.
