Hello and welcome to M. C. Taxes, LLC.
My name is Michael Watson EA. I own and operate M.C. Taxes, LLC out of my home. This allows for me to keep my costs down.
I possess the EA (Enrolled Agent) credential which means I have taxpayer representation right before all areas of the IRS. EA's have the same representation rights as CPA's and attorneys, however EA's can practice in any state or US territory, and only the EA credential specializes in Federal Taxes.
EA's have minimum eduation requirements that must be fulfilled by tax education. To see the differences in education requirements, please take a look at the CPE Requirements for Tax Pros.
So how can you know you are dealing with a tax professional who is who he says he is? Thankfully the IRS now has a tax professional lookup site available at http://irs.treasury.gov/rpo/rpo.jsf
Should you use a creditialed tax professional? That's up to you. If you want your preparer to take care of a problem with your return then you should know non credentialed preparers may...
Beginning on January 1, 2016, non-credentialed tax preparers who voluntarily acheive the AFSP (Annual Filing Season Program) will have limited representation rights.
*For the 2014 tax year filing season, most notices sent to taxpayers from the IRS requesting more information or suggesting a change to the taxes owed will not be mailed out until mid to late spring 2016.
You can also look to see if the business is a legitimate Electronic Return Originator (ERO) at http://www.irs.gov/uac/Authorized-IRS-e-file-Provider-Locator-Service-For-Tax-Professionals which is necessary in order to efile returns with the IRS. If your preparer is not listed, you should be very suspecious and you should ask questions.
