The Florida Society of Enrolled Agents (FSEA) recently presented Royal Palm Beach businessman Jeffrey Schneider with the Excellence in Education Award in recognition of his efforts to improve the quality and scope of FSEA education programs.
Enrolled agents are federally licensed tax practitioners who can represent clients before the Internal Revenue Service (IRS).
Schneider is a past president of the FSEA, a fellow of the National Tax Practice Institute, a Certified Tax Resolution Specialist and the principal at SFS Tax & Accounting Services. The winners were announced in June during the annual Convention and Installation Banquet in St. Petersburg. Nominations were based on unique standards for each award.
Enrolled agents (EAs) are America’s tax experts. They are the only federally licensed tax practitioners who specialize in taxation and also have unlimited rights to represent taxpayers before the IRS. That means that if you get a letter from the IRS, or worse, are audited or are the target of a collection action, an enrolled agent can speak directly to the IRS on your behalf.
While attorneys and certified public accountants are also licensed, only enrolled agents specialize exclusively in taxes.
Enrolled agents are required to complete many hours of continuing education each year to ensure they are up-to-date on the constantly changing tax code and must abide by a code of ethics.
Schneider leads the team at SFS Tax & Accounting Services, which has offices in Royal Palm Beach and Port St. Lucie. He can be reached at (772) 337-1040.
