Member NAEA , ASTPS | CCH Certified in IRS Representation. Certified Quickbooks Pro Advisor
Chris earned a MBA with areas of focus in finance and strategic management and a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Management from the University of Central Florida.
Chris is an Enrolled Agent (EA) and member of the National Association of Enrolled Agents (NAEA) and the American Society of Tax Problem Solvers ( ASTPS).
Unlike CPA's and Attorneys, EAs are required to pass an examination administered by the IRS and must demonstrate their competence in matters of taxation before they receive their license to practice and may represent a taxpayer before the IRS. EAs specialize in taxation and EAs are the only taxpayer representatives who receive their right to practice directly from the Federal government (Attorneys & CPA's are licensed by the states).
Because of the high knowledge and skillset requirements necessary to become an EA and the continuing education requirements to maintain the license (90 hours every 3 years for NAEA members), there are only about 40,000 practicing EAs in the entire country.
Chris is a member of the National Association of Enrolled Agents (NAEA) and is Vice President of the Orlando Chapter of the Florida Society of Enrolled Agents (FSEA) www.orlandotax.org.
