National Association of Enrolled Agents

The IRS calls Enrolled Agents “America’s Tax Experts”. EAs have earned the privilege of representing taxpayers before the IRS by passing a three-part comprehensive IRS test covering individual and business tax returns (or, in some cases, by having experience as a former IRS employee). They keep this elite status by adhering to ethical standards and completing at least 72 hours of continuing education courses every three years. [http://www.naea.org]

National Tax Practice Institute

Fellows of National Tax Practice Institute have completed a rigorous three-year curriculum which has uniquely prepared them to effectively represent their clients before all administrative levels of the IRS. Having successfully completed coursework covering all variances of examinations, audits, collections and appeals, and having studied best practices and role-playing, Fellows know the entire process from both the client and IRS perspective. While earning the EA license denotes competence and the right to represent taxpayers, Fellows have made the commitment to a higher level of knowledge and excellence which sets them apart. NPTI Fellows have completed a stringent, three-level program of study that covers all facets of representing clients before the IRS. They have learned to guide their clients through the often challenging maze of IRS codes, internal regulations and agency structure.[http://goo.gl/5gT8GX]
