apple-256261_1280Posted on the AccountingWEB website on Friday: a new article by me called “6 Things You Might Not Know About Enrolled Agents.” 

For this article, I freshened a series I did on this blog in late 2014 and early 2015 called “5 Things You Might Not Know About Enrolled Agents.” Here are the original 5 posts:

  1. We’ve Been Around Since 1884
  2. We Don’t Work for the IRS
  3. Two Ways to the EA
  4. The SEE Isn’t a Tax Prep Exam
  5. EAs are the Only Tax Pros Required to Take CPE

For the AccountingWEB article, I decided to remove #5 about CPE and instead added two new pieces: #5: In the Tax World, EAs are 100% Equal to CPAs and Attorneys; and #6: Until Recently, There Was No Protection for EAs to Hold Themselves Out as EAs.
