Welcome to Capital of Texas Enrolled Agents’ Web Site
CTEA, or Capital of Texas Enrolled Agents, is an organization
whose mission is to foster the professional growth of its members
through Continuing Professional Education (CPE) and facilitate
communications with the Internal Revenue Service and state
taxation agencies. Our group is comprised of 80 Austin and
central Texas area tax professionals, the majority of whom are
enrolled agents (EAs). Rounding out the membership are CPAs,
attorneys and other tax practitioners.
CTEA members adhere to a strict code of ethical and professional
conduct as set forth by Treasury Department Circular No. 230.
The U.S. Treasury sets rigorous professional standards and work
experience requirements for EAs, who are the only federally
licensed tax practitioners. State regulators license CPAs and
attorneys. In order to maintain their professional status, EAs must
have a minimum of seventy-two hours of CPE (directly related to
federal taxation issues) over a three-year period and must apply
to be re-certified.
CTEA members’ areas of expertise include individual and
business tax preparation, representation before the IRS in
examination and collection issues, tax planning and other financial
services. With their broad spectrum of knowledge and
experience, CTEA members can provide professional assistance
to the public on a wide variety of tax and financial issues at
federal, state and local levels.
