Why ₹2,999?

The token fee of ₹2,999 serves as a filter to attract committed and serious learners to our community (bear in mind that coaching institutes usually charge between ₹30,000 to ₹50,000 for EA coaching). We believe that by charging a small fee, we will attract learners who are truly interested in advancing their careers and gaining valuable skills and also support partially in running our operations.

We remain committed to keeping our fees as low as possible and not to make any profits, while still continue to improve in our endeavor of providing high-quality education and resources to our learners.

How to become an Enrolled Agent?

  • The IRS has four Enrolled Agent requirements that you’ll need to complete to become an Enrolled Agent (EA):
    • Obtain a PTIN
    • Schedule and pass all three parts of the Special Enrollment Exam (SEE - Enrolled Agent (EA) Exam) within two years
    • Apply for Enrollment using Form 23
    • Pass a suitability check, which includes tax compliance and criminal background check

Exam Structure

  • The IRS Enrolled Agent (EA) Exam is a comprehensive three-part test that tax preparers must pass to become an IRS Enrolled Agent. The sections of each exam are taken separately on different dates. If a candidate passes one part of the exam, that score is carried over for up to two years. After two years, that score no longer carries over, and the candidate must retake that section
  • Each part of the Enrolled Agent exam contains 100 multiple-choice questions (MCQs). These 100 MCQs include 85 scored questions and 15 experimental questions. So between the three Enrolled Agent (EA) Exam parts, you’ll have to answer 300 questions
  • Questions are in three possible formats:
    • Direct question
    • Incomplete sentence
    • All of the following except
  • All three types of questions are in MCQ format, with four possible answers for each question. There are no true-false questions applicable.
  • The total testing time for each Enrolled Agent exam part is 3.5 hours. However, your total time at the Prometric testing center will be 4 hours, as your appointment includes 30 minutes for a pre-exam tutorial and a post-exam customer satisfaction survey. Moreover, you should arrive at the testing center at least 30 minutes before your scheduled appointment time
  • An on-screen timer shows the time you have remaining for the exam. The Enrolled Agent (EA) Exam includes no breaks, though. Nevertheless, you may leave the testing room to drink water or use the restroom, but the exam timer will not stop

License and Renewal

  • Enrolled Agents (EAs) are required to renew their PTIN with the IRS annually
  • The renewal period is open from mid-October to December 31
  • A candidate can renew his/her PTIN online or by mail
  • Enrolled Agents (EA) must also keep up with the Continuing Education requirements

Learn every thing you need to know about EA Exam

The IRS Enrolled Agent (EA) Exam is a comprehensive three-part test that tax preparers must pass to become Enrolled Agents (EA). After Tax-Preparers pass all 3 parts of the exam and complete the other requirements, they will be able to attain Enrolled Agent (EA) designation. It allows Enrolled Agents (EA) to practice before the IRS and showcase their Tax Expertise.

Special Enrollment Exam (SEE - Enrolled Agent (EA) Exam) consists of three parts:

  • Individuals
  • Businesses
  • Representation, practices & procedures

Each exam part may be taken 4 times per testing window, which runs from May 1 to the end of February.

The test is offered from May 1 to the end of February of the following year. The test is not offered during the annual blackout period in March and April. During this time the test is updated with the most recent tax law.

Generally, all three parts should be completed within 2 years from the date of completion of the first exam. However, due to COVID-19, exam candidates in 2020-2022 were given 3 years to complete all three parts.

The fee to take each part of the SEE is $203. This is the fee that needs to be paid to IRS. Refer to this link for more information: https://www.prometric.com/test-takers/search/irs

Scaled scores are determined by calculating the number of questions answered correctly and converting it to a scale that ranges from 40 to 130. The IRS has set the scaled passing score at 105. Failing candidates are provided a scaled score value so that they may see how close they are to be successful.

PTIN stands for the Preparer tax identification number. All paid preparers must enter this PTIN on all tax returns they prepare. It can be applied for at any time during the year and should be renewed by December 31st of every year.

Click Here to know more about PTIN.

Applicants do not need to hold a particular degree or meet experience requirements. Enrolled Agent (EA) certification follows a straightforward process. Enrolled Agent (EA) candidates must apply for a preparer tax identification number (PTIN), sign up for the certification exam, and learn enough about individual, business, estate and gift tax law, practice, procedure, representation, and ethics to pass all parts of the exam.

Candidates may take each part of the exam up to four times during the 10-month window of May 1 - February 28. You must wait until the next testing window to try for the fifth time.

You will not receive any certificate of completion from the IRS after you complete your EA exams. You would need to directly apply for the license.

Depending on your tax knowledge and experience, becoming an Enrolled Agent can take 3-8 months.

To apply for a Preparer Tax Identification Number (PTIN), you can follow these steps:

  • Visit the IRS website: https://rpr.irs.gov/ptin
  • Start the application: Click on the link or button that allows you to start the PTIN application process.
  • Create an account: If you haven't previously registered on the IRS website, you'll need to create an account.
  • Complete the application form: Fill out the PTIN application form. The form will ask for information such as your name, contact information, previous PTIN (if applicable), business details (if applicable), and professional credentials (if any).
  • You would require a notarized copy of your valid government document. You would be uploading a soft copy of this while filling out the application. You would also need to fill Form 8946.
  • Generally it will take 4 to 6 weeks for the IRS to review your application and get back to you. Once you get an approval from the IRS, they will send you a payment request link. As soon as you make the payment, you will get the PTIN.
  • Please note that PTIN will expire on 31st December of every year and cost of renewal is $30.75 (may vary from year to year).

Please get in touch with our team at support@entigrityacademy.com and we would further guide you with this process

After completing your exams, you would need to fill out Form 23 (fill out the basic details), and pay an enrollment fee to the IRS to get your license.

There are no experience (or articleship) requirements needed to write and receive your Enrolled Agent certificate

All PTINs expire on December 31 of each year and are required to be renewed to be current and active. PTIN renewal open season begins mid-October each year for the following year.

Learn every thing you need to know about Exam Tips

When it comes to studying for the Enrolled Agent (EA) certification, choosing a self-preparing or self-review course offers unmatched benefits. With flexible scheduling, personalized learning, cost-effectiveness, convenience, and lifetime access to comprehensive materials, you have the freedom to study at your own pace and achieve your EA goals.

EA Prep Course requires you to study up to 70-100 hours of study time for each exam part based on the experienced candidate.

We suggest that you start with part one because this is based on individual tax returns – which directly relates to the work and tasks that you will have been doing as a tax preparer to date. Additionally, Part 3 will contain more references related to Parts 1 and 2, so, we advise you to appear for Part 3 at the last to clear your concepts.

If you approach the exam in a planned and focused manner, it's not an impossible task. The IRS Enrolled Agent exam pass rate fluctuates from 70% to 74%. This is a high pass rate compared to other professional accounting exams, like the CPA, which has an average pass rate of 45-50%. The IRS sets a scaled passing score of 105 out of the available 130 points.

Learn every thing you need to know about Career Opportunities

While there are a lot of job opportunities available in the market, thanks to the booming tax outsourcing sector in India, we do not provide any job guarantee with Entigrity or any other company.

While there are a lot of work opportunities in India in the US tax outsourcing sector where you could build your career with the MNCs and other accounting services companies, going to the US directly and landing a job has many other factors that you would have to consider.

Yes, with the EA qualification, you would be able to take up offshore US taxation work.

Pursuing and completing EA would help you land a job with MNCs and other accounting services firms in India and other countries across the world.

Please be noted that while there are a lot of job opportunities available in the market, thanks to the booming tax outsourcing sector in India, we do not provide any job guarantee with Entigrity or any other company.
