Stark State College offers the online Certificate in Enrolled Agent. Preparing tax returns is becoming more and more complicated, creating a need for qualified tax preparers. Only three professions– attorney, certified public accountant and enrolled agent– can represent a taxpayer before the Internal Revenue Service.
If you want to prepare tax returns without taking all the additional courses required to become an attorney or a certified public accountant, earning this certificate and passing the Enrolled Agent Exam administered by the Internal Revenue Service, satisfies that need. Your curriculum will cover individual tax, corporate and business taxes, non-profit taxation and estate and income tax planning, and you’ll be prepared to sit for the Enrolled Agent Exam.
- Official high school transcript or GED certificate and scores
