An enrolled agent is a person who has earned the privilege of representing taxpayers before the Internal Revenue Service by either passing a three-part comprehensive IRS test covering individual and business tax returns, or through experience as a former IRS employee.

Individuals who obtain this elite status must adhere to ethical standards and complete 72 hours of continuing education courses every three years.
