About the Exam
An enrolled agent (EA) does not need a college degree; rather they must demonstrate special competence in tax matters by passing all three parts of the IRS Special Enrollment Examination. An Individual with 5 years of relevant employment with the IRS may apply for enrollment to become a tax agent (EA) without taking the exam.
• The EA Exam. Officially known as the Special Enrollment Examination (SEE) is a three-part exam administered by Prometric on behalf of the Internal Revenue Service. Each part is taken as a separate 100 question EA exam and you will have 3.5 hours to answer all questions for that part. A candidate may re-take each part up to four times each testing period.
