An Enrolled Agent (EA) is a federally-authorized tax practitioner who has technical expertise in the field of taxation.
The EA designation is awarded to those tax professionals who have completed a three part comprehensive examination. Enrolled Agents are required to complete 72 hours of continuing professional education every three years, to maintain their certification. According to the National Association of Enrolled Agents there are currently about 46,000 practicing EAs in the United States.
