Jeff Lipsey is a Certified Public Accountant and an Enrolled Agent; he is a member of the AICPA and the National Association of Enrolled Agents (NAEA). The NAEA requires all members to obtain 30 hours of Continuing Education (CE) each year in tax only–which means we are always up-to-date on the recent tax changes.

What is an Enrolled Agent?

From the IRS website:

An enrolled agent is a person who has earned the privilege of representing taxpayers before the Internal Revenue Service by either passing a three-part comprehensive IRS test covering individual and business tax returns, or through experience as a former IRS employee. Enrolled agent status is the highest credential the IRS awards. Individuals who obtain this elite status must adhere to ethical standards and complete 72 hours of continuing education courses every three years.

Enrolled agents, like attorneys and certified public accountants (CPAs), have unlimited practice rights. This means they are unrestricted as to which taxpayers they can represent, what types of tax matters they can handle, and which IRS offices they can represent clients before. Learn more about enrolled agents in Treasury Department Circular 230.

More information about the National Association for Enrolled Agents (from the NAEA Website):

The enrolled agent profession dates back to 1884 when, after questionable claims had been presented for Civil War losses, Congress acted to regulate persons who represented citizens in their dealings with the U.S. Treasury Department. These intriguing beginnings have grown to include the current National Association of Enrolled Agents (NAEA), which is a national association of over 11,000 independent, licensed tax professionals. NAEA is dedicated to helping its members maintain the highest level of knowledge, skills and professionalism in all areas of taxation, so that members may most effectively represent the needs of their clients.

NAEA provides valuable services to tax professionals and taxpayers alike. For example, NAEA members are required to complete a minimum of 30 hours of CE each year in the interpretation, application and administration of federal tax laws in order to maintain membership in the organization. This requirement surpasses the IRS required minimum and ensures that taxpayers choosing to use an EA always receive up-to-date guidance reflecting the most recent tax code updates.

NAEA’s dedication to Advocacy is another unique aspect of our service, reflecting our commitment to providing a voice on behalf of our members and taxpayers’ interests to the federal government and regarding tax-related legislation.
