National Association of Enrolled Agents (NAEA)
The enrolled agent profession dates back to 1884 when, after questionable claims had been presented for Civil War losses, Congress acted to regulate persons who represented citizens in their dealings with the U.S. Treasury Department. These intriguing beginnings have grown to include the current National Association of Enrolled Agents (NAEA), which is a national association of over 11,000 independent, licensed tax professionals. NAEA is dedicated to helping its members maintain the highest level of knowledge, skills and professionalism in all areas of taxation, so that members may most effectively represent the needs of their clients.
NAEA provides valuable services to tax professionals and taxpayers alike. For example, NAEA members are required to complete a minimum of 30 hours of CE each year in the interpretation, application and administration of federal tax laws in order to maintain membership in the organization. This requirement surpasses the IRS required minimum and ensures that taxpayers choosing to use an EA always receive up-to-date guidance reflecting the most recent tax code updates.
NAEA’s dedication to Advocacy is another unique aspect of our service, reflecting our commitment to providing a voice on behalf of our members and taxpayers’ interests to the federal government and regarding tax-related legislation.
