NAEA’s National Tax Practice Institute Fellows have gone through an intensive three-part curriculum that uniquely equips them to effectively represent their clients at all administrative levels of the IRS. By mastering various aspects of examinations, audits, collections, and appeals, as well as incorporating best practices and role-playing, Fellows possess comprehensive knowledge from both the client’s and IRS’s perspectives. While obtaining the EA license demonstrates competence and the right to represent taxpayers, Fellows have taken the extra step to attain a higher level of knowledge and excellence, setting them apart even further. This specialized course, exclusively available to licensed tax professionals, aims to prepare enrolled representatives in protecting their client’s rights by providing the most up-to-date information on tax laws and procedures crucial to effective representation.

Enrolled agents (EAs) form a diverse group of independent, federally authorized tax practitioners who possess advanced technical expertise in taxation and are licensed to practice by the United States Department of the Treasury. As the only tax practitioners authorized by the federal government with unrestricted representation rights before the IRS, EAs provide invaluable advice and representation to taxpayers undergoing IRS examinations, facing difficulties in tax payment, or seeking to minimize or recover penalties. Moreover, EAs proficiently prepare tax returns for individuals, partnerships, corporations, estates, trusts, and any other entities subject to tax reporting requirements. All EAs specialize in taxation and are required by the federal government to continually enhance their professional skills through ongoing education. Therefore, enrolled agents are truly recognized as “America’s Tax Experts!”
