The EA certification can be earned in one of two ways: by having worked at the IRS for five years in a position which regularly interpreted and applied tax code and regulations, or by passing a Special Enrollment Examination and possessing an acceptable amount of past IRS work experience as determined by the NAEA. All candidates must undergo a rigorous background check and complete 72 hours of continuing professional education every three years. 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).
