Pogogeff & Company Accountant Earns Enrolled Agent Designation
February 28, 2014 (PRLEAP.COM) Business NewsFort Lee, NJ – Pogogeff & Company has announced that accountant, D. Thomas Grigsby, Jr., recently earned the prestigious Enrolled Agent designation from the U.S. Internal Revenue Service (IRS).
The IRS grants the Enrolled Agent designation only to accountants who demonstrate proven experience in the field as an IRS agent or who pass a rigorous three part examination that verifies their high level of knowledge in taxation, including business and individual tax returns. The Enrolled Agent designation is the highest credential awarded by the IRS and gives those who qualify the ability to represent taxpayers before the IRS.
As an Enrolled Agent, Grigsby is a federally authorized tax practitioner and will now be able to offer an unparalleled level of service to clients, by directly handling matters that involve the IRS.
"By obtaining Enrolled Agent status, I can now offer greater assistance to clients who are undergoing audits and facing collections. Most CPAs are knowledgeable about taxes, but few specialize in the area and even fewer are given EA status. I am excited to be able to increase the level of service that I provide to Pogogeff & Company and am committed to helping the individual and business clients I serve with their tax needs," Grigsby said.
As part of the high standards that Enrolled Agents are expected to keep, Grigsby will complete 72 hours of continuing education every three years. This means that Pogogeff & Company will be able to serve their clients with the most thorough and up-to-date knowledge of ever-changing tax law, in addition to being able to represent them directly before the IRS.
"Enrolled Agent Status puts me in the special position to offer direct and comprehensive representation with the IRS, including audits, collections, payment problem resolution, and appeals. With this certification, our firm has a unique advantage that truly allows us to do the most to help our clients," Grigsby said.
