What's the difference between an Enrolled Agent (EA) and a Certified Public Accountant (CPA)?

An Enrolled Agent (EA) is the only federally licensed tax practitioner that the IRS credentials as having technical expertise in taxation. EA's have passed a rigorous, 3-part competency exam that focuses specifically on individual and business ethics and tax issues. Unlike unlicensed tax preparers, EA's must receive a background check. The true value of an Enrolled Agent is that they keep up with countless tax laws, regulations, and have the expertise apply these rules for your benefit.

The CPA exam covers a range of areas including financial, audit, business, and tax and regulation. They are regulated by individual states. Both EA's and CPA's are required to complete continuing education each year. EA's have the same representation authority that a CPA or attorney would have during audits, collections, and appeals.

Don’t make the mistake of trying to represent yourself. Hire the right professional... an Enrolled Agent.

At Taxwise Services, we realize that you need more from your accountant than preparing financial statements and tax returns. Your accountant should act as your business and financial advisor, helping you to understand the financial health of your business or personal finances through the interpretation of your financial statements. A proper accountant needs to keep aware of changes in tax laws and other regulatory requirements so that you can focus less on your accounting and taxes, and more on your business.


Billy Edgemon answers your accounting and tax questions.

"I've already filed my tax returns, but I just received another tax document. What do I need to do?"

- Steve S.

Great question!

The IRS and most state agencies will require you to amend your tax returns. There's a specific form, IRS 1040X, where you summarize your original return figures and then show the additions or changes needed in a separate column. You must also provide an explanation and attach documentation for each number in the change column. The form then calculates whether you owe additional tax or receive a refund.

To avoid any trouble with the IRS, it's best to consult a tax professional to make sure nothing is overlooked. You could be leaving money on the table, or worse, exposing yourself to a higher chance of being audited.

Terrific Accounting Service

I have benefitted from the terrific accounting, business financial advice and tax services of the staff at Taxwise Services since 1987. The owner himself has given me excellent, personalized services through 11 years of accounting and financial development of my technical writing company, through an IRS audit (they went away empty handed!), and with my individual tax returns. Taxwise Services has helped me solve many business and financial issues before they became problems and has always given me excellent advice.

Excellent Service

We hired Taxwise Services for our business in 1995. They provide first rate service at a reasonable price. We were so impressed with their professionalism that we quickly hired them to attend to our personal income taxes as well. Over the past 11 years they have taken very good care of us and always provided sound, honest advice. Thanks to their integrity, we look forward to a business partnership for many years to come.

The Best In The Business

If you are looking for the best then look no further because this guy is great! Billy specializes in helping business with their taxes and accounting. When I started out looking for help with my business' taxes and accounting I searched everywhere and talked to a lot of accountants. One of the first things Billy said to me was that he could help me with everything I asked for help with, and that everything would be done by the book. No funny stuff and totally upfront and honest. He also promised to keep the cost of his help as low as possible. I have now been working with him for the last six months and totally impressed! He has offered tons of great business advice and got my business on the right track. His costs are also half of what my last accountant was, and a thousand times more reliable and helpful. His helper Felix (the cat) is also great!
