From TaxAlmanac

Jump to: navigation, search
Hello, my name is David, you can call me Dave or anything other than an expletive. I obtained my EA license in 2007 (newbie) but I have been preparing returns since 2003 under the tutelage of my stepfather who was a former IRS employee and also an Enrolled Agent.

I appreciate all of the handy/free/knowledge rich advice on this forum (My posts are little in number but I have been a reader of this site for about 5 years). I'd like to be a contributor to this forum, as soon as I work up the courage to do so! :)

Why didn't I take the CPA test and obtain that license? I never had the desire to do so. I also think EAs are smarter and better looking than CPAs (that's a joke). I wanted to help taxpayers with filing returns, giving tax advice, assisting in audits/collections and I never had much desire to do bookkeeping, financial audits or work for a large accounting firm. And let's face it, CPAs are a bit stodgy (also a joke!).

Thanks for viewing my profile page, now go do something productive!

Thank you!
