Nope. Rus is an Enrolled Agent.
Oh! What’s an Enrolled Agent? Enrolled Agent is the highest accreditation that the IRS offers. Licensed to represent clients and non clients in front of the the IRS. It has been around longer than the CPA designation, it started due to the Horse Act of 1884 because people were cheating the government by claiming made up horses they lost during the Civil War. So the government wanted the people helping them to be held accountable. So ‘Enrolled Agents’ were created.
