Practice before the IRS

Enrolled Agents (EAs), certified public accountants (CPAs), and attorneys are unrestricted as to:

  • the taxpayers they can represent,
  • the tax matters they can handle, and
  • the IRS offices before which they can practice.

Practice before the IRS includes all matters connected with a presentation to the IRS on behalf of the taxpayer. Examples include preparing and filing documents, communicating with the IRS, and representing clients at hearings.

Enrolled Agents, certified public accountants, and attorneys are authorized to receive and inspect confidential tax information and to perform any and all acts that a taxpayer can perform with respect to the tax matters described on a power of attorney.
