IRS Enrolled Agent Courses

IRS Enrolled Agent Preparation

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.

Pay Average in NYC is $25 per hour ($52,102)

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 Enrolled Agents.
