Natasha Cannon Johnson, EA is a federally authorized practitioner empowered by the U.S. Department of the Treasury to represent taxpayers before the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). Enrolled agent status is the highest credential awarded by the IRS.
Enrolled agents must adhere to ethical standards and complete 72 hours of continuing professional education every three years, including two hours of ethics or professional conduct in each of the three years.
Enrolled Agents are the only federally licensed tax practitioners who specialize in all areas of taxation and can represent taxpayers to the IRS anywhere in the country.
Like attorneys and CPAs, enrolled agents are generally unrestricted as to which taxpayers they can represent and what types of tax matters they can handle, including audits, collection actions, payment issues, tax refund matters, and appeals.
