Hiring a Tax Attorney? An Enrolled Agent Can Do It All, For Less
If you’ve been on the receiving end of some “not-so-good” news from the IRS, such as a notification of a tax audit or the threat of a tax levy or a lien, you may be looking for help from a tax expert. Although your first inclination could be to hire a tax attorney, you may be interested to know that an enrolled agent (EA) can handle all of the same tax issues that a tax attorney does, for a whole lot less (an experienced tax attorney would charge from $300-$1,000 per hour, vs. an experienced EA would charge from $100-$300 per hour). Enrolled agents are required to demonstrate competence in every area of taxation, ethics, and representation in order to obtain and keep their practice privileges with the IRS. What’s more, they specialize in tax law, requirements, and the ever-changing tax codes. Hiring an EA and giving him or her power of attorney to resolve your tax problems is a cost effective way to handle your tax issues in lieu of a tax attorney.
Enrolled agents are able to advise, represent, and prepare tax returns for any personal or business entities with tax-reporting responsibilities, including:
EA’s are also able to represent you, and negotiate on your behalf for the most common things you’d seek a tax attorney’s assistance with. Since they have such specialized training, they may be able to get to the heart of the issue more quickly, and cost effectively, than a tax attorney. EA’s provide a wide range of services to clients, over and above tax advice and filing. You can hire an EA to do any of the following:
- Provide Tax Audit representation for any type of audit you may be issued – by mail, at an IRS office, or your own home or office.
- Submit an Offer In Compromise to reduce/resolve your tax liability, so you can get a fresh start.
- Aide you in having Tax Levies and Tax Liens removed.
- Deal with the tax implications of a bankruptcy.
- Handle Employment Taxes, and work with the IRS to clean up any unresolved payment issues.
- Help with filing Unfiled Tax Returns and negotiate any possible savings on penalties and/or interest.
- Represent you and Appeal any denial by the IRS.
Enrolled agents have client-EA confidentiality privilege, just as a tax attorney does. Most importantly, enrolled agents are the only federally licensed tax practitioners who specialize in taxation, with unlimited rights to represent taxpayers before all administrative levels of the IRS.
