There's no prior qualification required if you wish to pursue EA. A graduate with basic accounting knowledge can apply for the same, but the applicant must prove his/her competency for the tax-pertaining content. This can happen in two ways:

  1. Clear the Special Enrollment Exam (EA Exam):
  2. To pursue the dream of becoming an EA, a candidate must obtain PTIN passing scores on all three parts of the Special Enrollment Examination (Individuals, Businesses and Representation, Practices, and Procedures), which unfolds a significant area of Internal Revenue Code. There' s no definite pattern. There is no definite order to attempt the exam. The candidate has the liberty to take any section as first. The only necessity is to clear all the three sections to earn the EA certification.

  3. IRS Experience
  4. Candidates must have worked at the IRS for five consecutive years in a position that regularly engages in applying and interpreting the provisions of the Internal Revenue Code and the regulations relating to income, estate, gift, employment, or excise taxes.
