Enrolled agents are federally licensed tax practitioners who have unlimited rights to represent taxpayers before the IRS (Internal Revenue Service), the US Federal agency that administers the collection of taxes and enforcement of tax laws.
It is the highest credential awarded by the IRS, US. This EA credential not only verifies credibility but also opens multiple doors to new careers and attracts better work opportunities in India and abroad.
EAs are valuable to firms as they can practice in all 50 states in the US, and help prepare taxes for all international clients filing in the US as a massive number of international companies have a US presence.
The Enrolled Agent course is for those aspirants who plan to become expert tax advisors in the US. The Enrolled Agent course has a three-part exam known as the Special Enrollment Examination (SEE), administered by Prometric on behalf of the IRS.
Each of the three EA exams has 100 multiple-choice questions and a 3.5-hour testing time which covers a wide range of taxation topics. After the tax preparers pass all three Enrolled Agent exams and complete other requirements, it is then the IRS distinguishes them with the EA designation and allows them to practice before the IRS.
To appear for the Enrolled Agent examination a candidate should have:
There is no specific prior qualification required if candidates aspire to pursue the EA course. Any candidate with a minimum of 18 years of age having basic accounting knowledge can enroll for this course.
Students who have completed/pursuing 11th and 12th with Commerce or Economics subjects are eligible to enroll for the EA course.
Students who are pursuing/completed B.Com, BBA, BMS, or similar can also enroll for the EA course.
Additionally, students who are pursuing/completed M.Com, Inter CA, who do not intend to pursue CA can greatly benefit from this course too.
B.Com/M.Com graduates from tier 2 and tier 3 cities or even from smaller cities where employment opportunities are limited can avail better career opportunities post-completion of this course.
Dropouts from other Commerce programs can pursue this course as well.

Part of becoming an Enrolled Agent also means maintaining the EA certification in the future. Enrolled Agents must renew their license every 3 years which ensures that they are up to date with the changes/addition to the tax code.
