Nope. Our awesome founder, Rus, is an Enrolled Agent.
Oh! What’s an Enrolled Agent? Enrolled Agent is the highest accreditation that the IRS offers and has been around longer than the CPA designation. EAs are licensed to represent clients and non-clients in front of the IRS. The accreditation started with the Horse Act of 1884: People were cheating the government by claiming made-up horses they lost during the Civil War. The government wanted the people helping taxpayers to be held accountable, so ‘Enrolled Agents’ were created.
Rus has created an intensive training program for all Brass Taxes Advisors. Each and every Advisor on the team has completed more than 200 hours of training and is Brass Taxes Certified to meet with clients.
