Having a professional certification will do more than just increase your salary. It can help make up for mediocre grades or a lack of experience. Certifications are a great way to open doors.
Enrolled Agents (EAs) are individuals who have demonstrated special competence in tax matters and professional ethics, and have been enrolled to practice before the IRS as taxpayers’ agents or legal representatives. Practice before the IRS includes all matters connected with presentations to the IRS relating to a client’s rights, privileges, and liabilities under laws or regulations administered by the IRS.
If you have been attempting to enter the tax preparation department of your company but have been denied, obtaining the EA designation can be the stepping stone into a new field. In addition, other companies will now consider you for positions for which you did not previously qualify. You will be able to make more money and enjoy your job more thoroughly.
