Qualified tax preparers, including Raleigh CPAs, can have a big impact on your tax bill, holding your tax bill to a minimum, and potentially increasing the size of your refund. Review the articles below to learn more about tax preparer options for Raleigh
tax filers.

PRIMER ON ENROLLED AGENTS

What is an enrolled agent
for taxes?


Enrolled agents—sometimes referred to as EAs—are among the most experienced tax preparation experts you can find.
