ACCREDITED BUSINESS ADVISOR® (ABA)

ABAs are professionals who specialize in accounting services for individuals and small to medium size businesses. They can provide personalized financial reports and interpret those reports for you. These individuals have passed a full day exam testing their technical proficiency in financial accounting, reporting, statement preparation, taxation, business law, consulting services and ethics. Many CPAs and Enrolled Agents are also Accredited Business Accountants.

EAs: The Taxpayers' Tax Experts

Q: What does the term Enrolled Agent mean?
A: "Enrolled" simply means EAs are licensed by the federal government. "Agent" means EAs are authorized to appear in place of the taxpayer at all levels of the Internal Revenue Service. Enrollment dates back to 1884, when Congress acted to regulate persons who represented citizens in their dealings with the Treasury Department, after questionable claims had been presented for Civil War Losses.

Q: How do Enrolled Agents differ from other tax experts?
A: EAs are the only practitioners who have demonstrated competence, specifically in matters of taxation. Also, they are the only representatives for taxpayers who receive that right from the U.S. government (CPAs and attorneys are licensed by the states).

Q: What exactly do Enrolled Agents do?
A: Unlike attorneys or CPAs, Enrolled Agents specialize in taxation. Throughout the year, they advise, represent and prepare tax returns for individuals, partnerships, corporations, estates, trusts and any other entities with tax-reporting requirements. In California, for example, the more than 3,700 members of the California Society of Enrolled Agents prepare more than 2,000,000 tax returns each year. Enrolled Agents' expertise in the constantly changing field of tax law enables them to be effective representatives when taxpayers are audited by the IRS.
