Why Use an Enrolled Agent?
When you get a letter from the IRS or the State Tax Commission and it is asking for money, forms and papers, or questioning your taxes, you are involved in a Tax Controversy.
Why not use my CPA or get an attorney to fight this?
Certified Public Accountant: CPAs are expert accountants. They are trained to audit companies’ financial statements for the benefit of their owners. CPAs are adept at preparing tax returns. The do not have to know tax law. They are licensed to practice before the IRS in States they have board licenses, unless they get special permission directly from the IRS. They answer to State Boards if there is a problem with their performance.
Attorney: No attorney can practice before the IRS unless they are a Tax Attorney
Tax Attorney: The name says it all. Tax Attorneys deal more with criminal tax evasion cases like high dollar tax fraud. Some do tax preparation. A Tax Attorney does not know ALL tax law. Their yearly education on tax law does not meet the requirements of an Enrolled Agent. They answer to State Boards if there is a problem with their performance.
Enrolled Agent: EAs are the only Federally Licensed Tax Professional in America. EAs can practice in all 50 States in America and its Providences. EAs answer directly to the IRS and the Dept Of Treasury.
Who better to represent you and your situation than an EA who knows current tax laws, has continuous studies throughout the year on tax law and is recognized by the IRS as AMERICA’S TAX EXPERTS by the IRS and US Government? The IRS acknowledges that most EAs know the tax codes and laws better than their own IRS employees.
We can provide complete representation services before the IRS as well as state and local taxing authorities.
Prices for EA Services are based on estimated hours and services required.
If you are notified of an IRS or other State Tax Agency tax audit or collection action (IRS tax lien or IRS tax levy - or a lien or levy from any state), you need to be very careful what you tell - or don't tell - an IRS (or other tax agency) employee. Taxpayers who represent themselves hoping for a favorable resolution of their IRS tax controversy or state tax controversy, or who are represented by individuals who lack in-depth knowledge of the IRS or State Agency procedures and practices, can find themselves owing more than the professional representation fees they believed they saved. As mentioned previously, an IRS tax audit appeal is a complicated process that requires experience and knowledge of not only tax law, but of the internal procedures and the Internal Revenue Manual that IRS employees are supposed to follow. The following are just some of the areas where I can help you get through the process:
- Assessed Penalties (IRS Service Center)
- Offers in Compromise
- Innocent Spouse
- Collection Appeals (liens, levies and seizures)
- Collection Due Process
- Taxpayer Assistance Orders (Form 911)
- Installment Payment Plans
- Penalty and Interest Abatements
- Administrative Appeals
- Delinquent Returns
- Trust Fund Recovery Penalties
- Statute of Expiration Defense
- FOI (Freedom of Information Request)
- Collateral and Closing Agreements
- 15. Transcripts (This shows exactly what information the IRS has on you as well as to exactly why and how much you owe.)
