Patricia Rumschlag EA

I have chosen, at this point in my career, to specialize in both tax preparations and related financial services.

The EA after my name stands for Enrolled Agent (EA) as explained by the IRS. Enrolled agent status is the highest credential the IRS awards. Individuals who obtain this elite status must adhere to ethical standards and complete 72 hours of continuing education courses every three years.

Enrolled agents (EA), like attorneys and certified public accountants (CPAs), have unlimited practice rights. This means they are unrestricted as to which taxpayers they can represent, what types of tax matters they can handle, and which IRS offices they can represent clients before. Learn more about enrolled agents in Treasury Department Circular 230 (PDF). More information is available at
