Senate Concurrent Resolution 87, which Senator authored, recognizes Enrolled Agents (EAs) for their valuable work in California in helping taxpayers comply with the tax code by resolving that April 15 is EA Day.
EAs have been at the forefront of effective tax administration working together with both federal and California tax agencies to help taxpayers comply with the tax code.
Since 1884, when the profession was created at the end of the Civil War to represent citizens before the US Treasury Department, through to 1979 with the creation of the CA Society of Enrolled Agents and up to today, EAs assist taxpayers and any type of business entity with the annual and periodic compliance filing of their tax return to more complex tax issues of audit, liens, levy, appeals and collections.
EAs have been an important asset to both the California taxpayers and to California’s tax agencies. We commend Senator Nielsen and Assemblyman Gallagher for their effort to recognize Enrolled Agents who do so much to support California and fully support SCR 87.
