Course description: 
View the comprehensive topics list here.
This 22-hour course is a comprehensive and intensive review geared toward a single purpose - to help you master tax basics and pass the EA exam. This course provides you with cutting-edge knowledge, materials and resources to tackle the EA exam and pass on the first attempt! By earning your EA credential, you will forever be exempt from having to take the Annual Filing Season Program and its associated Annual Federal Tax Refresher course and exam. There are many more benefits for becoming an EA including the authority to represent clients before the IRS. You don’t have to take all parts of the exam at one sitting. Instead, you can sit for the exam part by part. This is also a very good, and intense course for those that are entering the field or just want a good refresher. Current EA's are limited with regards to the number of credit they can earn for this program. Choose any one part or all three! 

What's included:
  1. Detailed 3-volume NSA Enrolled Agent Review self-study course in online and PDF,
  2. Hundreds of past exam questions and proven exam taking tips and tricks,
  3. Access to the instructors via email (following the course) for asking questions, 
  4. This course has been approved by the IRS for credits in the following areas: Ethics (2); Federal Tax Updates (5); Federal Tax Law (5); SEE Exam Prep* (10). *currently licensed Enrolled Agents are not eligible to receive credit for the SEE Exam Prep portion.
