How we can help you?
Whether you are just starting your business or want to formalize your approach to managing your business, we can help. While our focus is on tax strategies, we have a team of professionals on call to help you with your bookkeeping, your finances, your direction, and your profitability. We hold to the philosophy that “If it’s not your passion … it’s not your job.” Each of our associates is committed to their area of specialty and stands ready to work with you whether it meets a short-term need or a long-term relationship. Our initial engagement with a new client is to gain an understanding of the needs from a tax standpoint. However, we can quickly or slowly into other disciplines, as needed.
What is an Enrolled Agent?
One of the major differences between an EA and other tax professionals is the certification process. To become an EA, you can follow two different paths. One is to work for the IRS in a position that requires you to interpret the tax code. The other is to pass the Special Enrollment Exam (SEE) and a background check. The SEE is a three-part exam the IRS administers. It covers tax concerns for individuals and businesses as well as other practices and procedures.
Enrolled agent status is the highest credential the IRS awards. Individuals who obtain this elite status must adhere to ethical standards and complete 72 hours of continuing education courses every three years.
