What is an enrolled IRS Agent?

An Enrolled Agent is a person who has earned the privilege of representing taxpayers before the IRS by either passing a three-part comprehensive test covering individual and business tax returns, or through experience as a former IRS employee. The 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. Enrolled agents have unlimited practice rights; this means that they have unlimited representation rights allowing them to represent their clients before the IRS on all tax matters. Each of our tax preparers at Rizzotto Tax Advisory Group are enrolled agents, each with over 20 years’ experience in tax preparation.
