Accounting Event Draws Future Enrolled Agents

Accounting Panel

Students gathered to learn the steps required to become an enrolled agent.  Enrolled agents are tax professionals licensed by the federal government.  They are experts in tax planning and the preparation of tax returns, and can advocate on behalf of taxpayers before the IRS and state tax agencies.  Attendees learned from a panel of four North County enrolled agents how they came into the profession and the necessary steps to sit for the required exam. Mike Deschamps, lead accounting instructor, organized and moderated the event.
