Jeff Jones Receives IRS Enrolled Agent (EA) Designation

Congratulation to Longview’s own Jeff Jones for earning the IRS Enrolled Agent (EA) designation. EAs are the only federally licensed tax practitioners who specialize in taxation and also have unlimited rights to represent taxpayers before the IRS.

The Enrolled Agent designation is earned by passing a three-part comprehensive examination, which covers all aspects of the tax code, and completing the IRS’ application process including a rigorous background check conducted by the IRS. In addition to the stringent testing and application process, the IRS requires enrolled agents complete 72 hours of continuing education, reported every three years, to maintain their Enrolled Agent status.

Jeff’s completing of the designation continues Longview’s dedication to advanced education and continuous improvement.
