What are the differences between enrolled agents and other tax professionals?
The enrolled agent is the most expansive license IRS grants a tax professional. Enrolled agents are generally unrestricted as to which taxpayers they can represent, what types of tax matters they can handle, and the IRS offices before which they practice.
Unlike attorneys and CPAs, who may or may not choose to specialize in taxes, all enrolled agents specialize in taxation. While CPAs and attorneys are licensed by the states, enrolled agents and registered tax return preparers are federally licensed. Registered tax return preparers must pass a basic, one-part exam and complete a minimal 15 hours of continuing education per year. They do not have the unlimited representation rights held by enrolled agents, CPAs and attorneys.
