What is an Enrolled Agent?
Enrolled Agents, or EAs for short, are tax professionals who have demonstrated their competence in the major categories of taxation by passing a comprehensive three-part exam, called the Special Enrollment Exam (SEE).

EAs are granted unlimited rights by the U.S. Department of Treasury to act as the agents or legal representatives of taxpayers with all departments of the Internal Revenue Service. This right is only granted to Enrolled Agents, CPAs, and attorneys.

Why Become an Enrolled Agent?
Whether you are just starting out in your career, or you have plenty of tax preparation experience and want to take things to the next level, you should consider becoming an Enrolled Agent. Here are three of the most valuable benefits of becoming an EA:

      Prestige. The EA credential is a federal designation handed down by the U.S. Department of the Treasury. This allows you to work anywhere in the country. Alternatively, CPA licensure is state-specific with certain restrictions. Clients know that enrolled agents can work across state lines.
Job Growth.
EAs enjoy steady work from individuals, tax-prep firms, law firms, accounting firms, and other corporations. Virtually everyone must pay taxes of some sort, and the ever-changing tax code means even more job security for Enrolled Agents.
Earning Potential.
When it comes to tax preparation, EAs can argue tax law, discuss audits with the IRS, deal with the IRS collections department, and make appeals. Not everyone can provide these services, which puts EAs in high demand and a position of great earning potential.
