SACRAMENTO, Calif., March 29, 2016 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The April 18 deadline to file your taxes is approaching rapidly – do you know who's doing your taxes?
The California Society of Enrolled Agents (CSEA), a statewide association of more than 3,500 independent, licensed tax professionals, offers a free online directory that allows taxpayers to quickly and easily find an Enrolled Agent in their area. Enrolled Agents (EAs) are America's Tax Experts.
The "Find an EA Directory" allows taxpayers to choose from a variety of options when searching for an Enrolled Agent, including location and specialty. There are many benefits to choosing an Enrolled Agent to manage your taxes this season. Enrolled Agents are federally licensed tax practitioners who specialize in tax preparation and have unlimited rights to represent taxpayers before the Internal Revenue Service.
