Enrolled Agent

Keith Espinoza is enrolled to practice before the Internal Revenue Service. An enrolled agent, or EA, has demonstrated special competence in tax matters by passing a multi-part comprehensive exam administered by the IRS. Enrolled agents are unrestricted as to which taxpayers they can represent, what types of tax matters they can handle, and which IRS offices they can represent clients before.

Enrolled agents are the only taxpayer representatives who receive their licenses to practice from the U.S. Federal government (CPAs and attorneys are licensed by the states). All enrolled agents must pass an extensive background check, adhere to ethical standards, and complete a required number of continuing education hours annually.

Enrolled agent status is the highest credential awarded by the IRS.


National Tax Practice Institute

The National Tax Practice Institute (NTPI) is a three-level program developed by The National Association Enrolled Agents to sharpen the representation skills of enrolled agents, CPAs, and tax attorneys. Representation requires expertise in the tax code as well as knowledge of the often challenging maze of IRS codes, internal regulations, and agency structure.

Practitioners who successfully complete all three levels (in order) join the ranks of the prestigious NAEA National Tax Practice Institute Fellows. Fellows are the creme de la creme of representation experts, and are highly qualified to represent their clients. Keith has completed the first two levels of the program and looks forward to gaining his NTPI Fellow credential in August 2018.


National Tax Training School

NTTS is the nation's foremost tax training institute and is the only nationally accredited distance education school specializing in tax training. They have been in existence since 1952. Keith is a graduate of their Higher Course in Federal Taxation with advanced training in corporations, partnerships, and fiduciaries. This course is preparatory for the IRS Enrolled Agent exam.
