Why choose an Enrolled Agent? An Enrolled Agent, also known as an EA, is one of three categories (EAs, CPAs, and Attorneys) of tax practitioners permitted to represent taxpayers before all branches of the Internal Revenue Service.

The EA designation is the only professional credential that specifically indicates technical competence in taxation. In short, an EA specializes in taxation.
