EA vs. CPA tax professionals:
what’s the difference?


Wondering about the difference between an enrolled agent and a certified public accountant? Check out the article below to find out how each one matches up to your tax preparation needs.

Tax Professional Guide

What is a tax professional?

The term “tax professional” applies to anyone who charges a fee to prepare your taxes, but not all tax preparers are authorized to represent your interests before the IRS. Only certified public accountants (CPAs), enrolled agents (EAs), and tax attorneys are recognized as Federally Authorized Tax Practitioners (FATPs) by the IRS.

Tax Preparer Guide

4 types of tax preparers

Tax preparers operating in New York fall into four basic categories, based on their education and credentials. These four categories are: 1) certified public accountants (CPAs); 2) IRS-recognized enrolled agents (EAs); 3) attorneys who specialize in tax law; and 4) non-credentialed income tax preparers. Read more to learn about the important differences between them.

FACTS ABOUT CPAs

What is a CPA (certified public accountant)?

A certified public accountant (CPA) is unique among tax preparers. A CPA is a credentialed accounting professional who is licensed by at least one state or US territory to offer the public various accounting services, including income tax preparation and filing.

Enrolled Agent Overview

What is an enrolled agent for taxes?

Enrolled agents, or EAs, are credentialed tax preparers. Many are former IRS employees who have decades of experience reviewing tax returns. They, like CPAs and tax attorneys, are authorized to represent New York taxpayers in tax matters that come before the IRS. Enrolled agents have "unlimited practice rights," meaning they are IRS-approved to represent not only individual taxpayers, but also businesses and organizations.
