Enrolled Agent (EA) status is the highest credential awarded by the IRS. EAs have earned the right to represent taxpayers at all levels of the IRS. Individuals with this elite status must pass a three-part comprehensive IRS test or have been an IRS employee. They must also complete 72 hours of continuing education every three years and adhere to strict ethical standards. CTRS, ACt-E
