An Enrolled Agent is a tax professional who has earned the privilege of representing tax payers before the Internal Revenue Service. Enrolled Agents, like attorneys and certified public accountants, are unrestricted as to which taxpayers they can represent, which types of
tax matters they can handle and which IRS offices they can practice before.
The program fulfills the educational requirements of the Internal Revenue Service to sit for the Special Enrollment Exam (SEE) which is a three-part examination. Those who pass both the examinations and the background check are then Enrolled Agents.
