About Our Professional Licenses and Designations

CPA - Certified Public Accountant

A CPA is a certified public accountant licensed by the state. To earn the prestige associated with the CPA license, individuals are required to demonstrate their knowledge and competence by passing the Uniform CPA Exam, meeting high educational standards and completing a specified amount of general accounting experience before they are issued a license. CPAs are subject to strict ethical standards, subject to the State of Tennessee Accountancy Laws, and are required to complete 80 hours of continuing professional education every two years.

IRS: EA - Enrolled Agent

"Enrolled" means EAs are licensed to practice by the federal government. "Agent" means EAs are authorized to appear in place of the taxpayer at the IRS. Only EAs, attorneys, and CPAs may represent taxpayers before the IRS. 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 Treasury Department.

Only Enrolled Agents are required to demonstrate to the IRS their competence in matters of taxation before they may represent a taxpayer before the IRS. Unlike attorneys and CPAs, who may or may not choose to specialize in taxes, all EAs specialize in taxation. EAs are the only taxpayer representatives who receive their right to practice from the U.S. government. (CPAs and attorneys are licensed by the states.) The EA's federal license allows them to represent taxpayers in any state in the U.S. and its territories.
