Enrolled Agent (EA)
An Enrolled Agent (EA) is a federally-authorized tax practitioner who has technical expertise in the field of taxation and who is empowered by the U.S. Department of the Treasury to represent taxpayers before all administrative levels of the Internal Revenue Service for audits, collections, and appeals. “Enrolled” means to be licensed to practice by the federal government, and “Agent” means authorized to appear in the place of the taxpayer at the IRS. Only Enrolled Agents, attorneys, and CPAs may represent taxpayers before the IRS. Only Enrolled Agents are required to demonstrate to the IRS their competence in matters of taxation before they may represent a taxpayer before the IRS. Unlike attorneys and CPAs, who may or may not choose to specialize in taxes, all Enrolled Agents specialize in taxation. Enrolled Agents are the only taxpayer representatives who receive their right to practice from the U.S. government (CPAs and attorneys are licensed by the states).
Certified Trust and Financial Advisor (CTFA)
A CTFA has demonstrated knowledge and expertise not only in general asset management, but also in complex estate and tax planning areas. A CTFA is trained to: Help you grow your wealth, preserve it for your heirs and transfer it according to your wishes; advise you on your full range of financial needs — estate holdings, bank accounts, collectibles and business interests and more; provide customized advice superior to off-the-shelf products and services; coordinate the services of your team of advisors and help provide a comprehensive perspective on your wealth. In addition, CTFA is the only certification that focuses on the fiduciary responsibilities of a personal trust professional. A CTFA offers you competence, accountability and adherence to a strict code of ethics —the peace of mind that only expert advice brings.
