Why Choose Black Rock Tax Service?
Besides offering tax services at reasonable rates, Black Rock Tax Service is led by and employs only IRS Enrolled Agents. Most tax preparation chains use their own standards for tax prep certification. Enrolled Agents are the only group officially licensed by the Internal Revenue Service for tax preparation and representation.
Can I e-file with Black Rock Tax Service?
Yes, Black Rock Tax Service is an IRS e-file authorized provider. IRS e-file greatly reduces the chance that you will get an error letter from the IRS. IRS e-file returns are virtually error-proof with an error rate of less than one percent. Also, if due a refund, you can expect to receive it in approximately three weeks from the acknowledgment date – even faster with Direct Deposit. This is approximately half the time as when filed on paper.
I usually prepare taxes on my own using software. Are there really that many tax changes that can affect me?
Yes. Only a qualified professional – such as an Enrolled Agent – with all the facts at his or her disposal can determine the appropriateness of the application of any law to any given situation. Enrolled Agents take continuing education courses each year to keep up with the changes and also have research tools at their disposal to constantly monitor the updates. Every year there are numerous changes to the tax laws and the tax code. IRS Code sections now number from 1 to over 9,800 and encompass more than 11,000 pages. The tax code and regulations are very complex and Congress is continually changing the tax laws. That is why it is important to choose a tax professional, such as an Enrolled Agent, who keeps up with the rules and regulations and uses this expertise to do the best job possible for every taxpayer.
What is an Enrolled Agent?
An enrolled agent (EA) is a federally licensed tax practitioner who has proven technical expertise in the field of taxation. Enrolled agents are empowered by the U.S. Department of the Treasury to represent taxpayers before all administrative levels of the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) for audits, collections, and appeals. Only EAs, attorneys, and certified public accountants (CPAs) may represent taxpayers before IRS.
What is the difference between an Enrolled Agent and other tax professionals?
Only EAs are required to demonstrate to the IRS their competence in matters of taxation before they may represent a taxpayer before the IRS. Unlike attorneys and CPAs, who may or may not choose to specialize in taxes, all EAs specialize in taxation. EAs are the only taxpayer representatives who receive their right to practice from the U.S. government (CPAs and attorneys are licensed by the states).
