What is an Enrolled Agent?

According to the National Association of Enrolled Agents, “Enrolled Agents (EAs) are America’s Tax Experts. They are the only federally-licensed tax practitioners who both specialize in taxation and have unlimited rights to represent taxpayers before the Internal Revenue Service. The tax specialists have earned the privilege of representing taxpayers before the IRS by either passing a comprehensive three-part examination covering individual tax returns, business tax returns, and representation, practice, and procedure or thorough relevant experience as a former IRS employee. All candidates are subject to a rigorous background check conducted by the IRS.”

What are the advantage of working with an Enrolled Agent?

According to the National Association of Enrolled Agents, “The advantage of working with an enrolled agent lies not only in the depth of his or her experience and understanding of how to prepare a tax return, but in his or her knowledge of tax law that may be used to represent taxpayers before the IRS. If you get a letter from the IRS, or worse, are audited or are the target of a collection action, your EA can speak directly to the IRS on your behalf.”

How can an Enrolled Agent help me?

Enrolled Agents advise, represent, and prepare the tax returns of individuals, partnerships, corporations, estates, trusts, and any other entity with tax reporting requirements. Enrolled Agents prepare millions of tax returns each year and their expertise in the continually changing field of taxation enables them to effectively represent taxpayers audited by the IRS. In addition to tax preparation and representation, many Enrolled Agents offer other business-related services, which may include:

  1. Bookkeeping
  2. Financial Statement Preparation
  3. Tax Preparation & Planning
  4. People Advisory Services
  5. Outsourced CFO Services

 

What does it look like to work with you?

Our number one goal is to make your accounting processes simple for you. So, we do most of the work! You’ll share your bank/credit card logins with us, and we’ll go in and grab all of the pertinent information. We’ll enter it into your accounting system and reconcile everything to make sure it matches your statements. We may have a few questions on the transactions in the beginning, but this list will get smaller and smaller as we become familiar with your specific spending habits. Then, each month, we will send you a list of financials that is tailored to your specific needs.

What does it take to get started?

We make the onboarding process as simple and easy as possible. Our process involves six simple steps:

  1. Register for a free account with us on our secure online portal and complete our questionnaire
  2. Set up your free consultation where we’ll discuss your accounting needs
  3. Review and sign your engagement letter
  4. Provide us with access to your accounting and payroll software
  5. Provide us with access to your bank account and credit card statements
  6. Get back to focusing on what you love

Yes! It IS that simple and easy!

Even if you need back data entered, this process is still quick! As long as you get your data to us in a timely fashion, we’ll get your first set of financials to you within 4-6 weeks.

What is your refund policy?

We do not offer refunds. Our goal, however, is 100% customer satisfaction. If, for any reason, you are not completely satisfied with your service or any of our programs, please contact customer service at hello@emeraldexpectations.com
