April is an enrolled agent with the Internal Revenue Service
What is an Enrolled Agent?
An enrolled agent is a person who has earned the privilege of representing taxpayers before the Internal Revenue Service by either passing a three-part comprehensive IRS test covering individual and business tax returns, or through experience as a former IRS employee. Enrolled agent status is the highest credential the IRS awards. Individuals who obtain this elite status must adhere to ethical standards and complete 72 hours of continuing education courses every three years.
Enrolled agents, like attorneys and certified public accountants (CPAs), have unlimited practice rights. This means they are unrestricted as to which taxpayers they can represent, what types of tax matters they can handle, and which IRS offices they can represent clients before.
April’s journey began 20 years ago when she decided to capitalize on her organizational skills and aptitude for finance. Without the formal education required to be hired at a big CPA firm, April bootstrapped her way from zero and became a successful self-taught accountant. She is a certified QuickBooks Pro-Advisor specializing in both the desktop and online versions of the software.
April is not only constantly looking to improve her business process, but is also looking to make a positive impact on people’s lives.
Over the years the fundamental principles that she took with her into the business still remain:
Quality Service, Grit, and Integrity.
