Why Choose an Enrolled Agent?

tax preparation services

At Vilensky & Company, we offer the skills and training of an enrolled agent. CPAs and accountants can prepare taxes but enrolled agents specialize in taxes and have completed extensive training. If you’re looking for effective tax planning strategies and worry-free tax preparation at tax time, an EA is your best bet.

What is an Enrolled Agent?

Enrolled agents are federally licensed tax professionals who have been licensed by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). EAs prepare business and personal income tax returns and can represent taxpayers before the IRS in all matters.

Being an EA requires adherence to ethical standards and successfully passing a personal background check by the federal government. EAs are also required to complete 72 hours of continuing education courses every three years in order to preserve their license.

What’s the Difference Between a CPA and an Enrolled Agent?

Certified Public Accountants (CPAs) and Enrolled Agents are both qualified to perform accounting tasks for small businesses but there’s a big difference in their training requirements when it comes to tax. The CPA exam is primarily centered on accounting and auditing rules and procedures but the test to become an EA focuses on tax law.
