National Enrolled Agents Month spotlights the invaluable work of enrolled agents across the United States.

These tax professionals are often the unsung heroes of tax season, helping individuals and businesses navigate the complex world of taxation.

Their role is crucial, as they are the only federally licensed tax practitioners who specialize in taxation and have unlimited rights to represent taxpayers before the IRS.

This month-long celebration highlights their expertise and dedication to ensuring that taxpayers receive the best possible guidance and support.

What’s the Purpose of National Enrolled Agents Month

Celebrating National Enrolled Agents Month is important for several reasons. It raises awareness about the critical services these professionals provide.

Enrolled agents not only prepare taxes but also represent taxpayers in audits, appeals, and collections. This month encourages the public to appreciate the expertise and commitment of enrolled agents who work tirelessly to help individuals understand and manage their tax obligations more effectively.

Additionally, this month aims to educate the public about the significance of proper tax representation. Many people are unaware of the complexities involved in tax matters until they face an issue.

By spotlighting enrolled agents, National Enrolled Agents Month helps demystify tax processes and promote financial literacy.

It also underscores the importance of having a knowledgeable professional on your side when dealing with the IRS, ensuring that taxpayers are well-informed and well-represented​.

History of National Enrolled Agents Month

National Enrolled Agents Month started in February 2019. The National Association of Enrolled Agents (NAEA) initiated this celebration to recognize the significant role enrolled agents play in helping taxpayers.

This month-long event highlights the expertise and dedication of these tax professionals who represent taxpayers before the IRS.

The NAEA, founded in 1972, saw the need to bring more attention to enrolled agents. These professionals undergo rigorous training and continuous education to maintain their licenses, ensuring they provide top-notch tax assistance.

The NAEA wanted to ensure that both the public and the tax community acknowledged the valuable contributions of enrolled agents.

By establishing National Enrolled Agents Month, the NAEA aimed to educate the public about the services enrolled agents offer.

This initiative also serves to thank and honor these tax experts for their hard work. Enrolled agents help demystify complex tax laws and provide critical support during audits and other tax issues.​
