I decided to become an Enrolled Agent because I love the puzzle that is taxation. With a Bachelor's Degree in Studio Art, I thought it would be very difficult to make the career switch. When I found information on becoming an Enrolled Agent, it opened up a whole new door for me...  I've gained a wide scope of knowledge that I can now apply during tax season and beyond to help clients get the best results possible with not just their returns, but with any issues they may face outside of tax preparation. One of the other great benefits to this designation is that even though I am so young, the license will follow me to any state, wherever life takes me, because it is a Federal license.
