The local business directory for my town was just published.

I’m an Enrolled Agent. Commonly abbreviated as “EA.” But apparently the publishers of the directory were confused:

Apparently I’m actually an extended-play record.

I haven’t called the local group that published the directory yet. It was a free listing, and it made me laugh, so I’m not angry.

It was probably just a typo or just an honest mistake.

But would a mistake like this be made with a CPA?

I doubt it.

Then again, CPAs have major name recognition.

Meanwhile, 90% of the population has never heard of an EA.
