Do you have CPAs on staff? What's the difference between a CPA and an EA? As of January 2020, none of our staff hold a CPA license (Certified Public Accountant). However, we do have staff who hold the EA designation (Enrolled Agent). The EA designation is the highest credential that the IRS designates directly, granting our team full authority to practice in all tax matters including tax preparation, resolution and representation in every State. The main difference between an EA and a Certified Public Accountant is that the EA designation grants us full authority with the IRS, but no authority with the SEC (while CPAs have both). This means that unless you own a publically traded company, we can likely serve all your accounting needs
