Have been considering becoming an enrolled agent?
This is for you!
If you are ready to take your career to the next level and not sure where and when to start? You are in luck, we will help you!
April 15th is a great event for tax experts in the US. This often means the end of a crisis and a busy season that lasted several months. This date is the deadline for managing your tax concerns which was set by the IRS in America. April 15 is usually a major milestone, with the weeks following being spent relaxing, resting, or returning to a hobby.
After this your tax software gets shut down, your computer has been shut down, and after months of tax filing, you can finally enjoy a well-deserved vacation. Now seems to be the best time for a family vacation or a weekend getaway, maybe you are right. But before you take off your clothes and start cheering, let me tell you why now is the best time to start preparing for the registered agent exam. Who wants to study taxes right away after tax season?
Not sure if a registered agent is right for you? Let’s take a look at the main reasons why you should start preparing for the registration agent exam as soon as possible.
Most likely, after a long working season, learning is the last thing you want to do. But what if we told you that if you start around this time, you can almost guarantee to earn your enrolled agent credential before next financial season? What if I also say that you can start with 30 minutes a day? Or you can be a certified EA with the help of 3 months of comprehensive enrolled agent training course in Hyderabad.
Year after year, students come to iLead enrolled agent training institute in Hyderabad to prepare for their EA exams, and the first thing we always ask is “Why now?” Most of the test candidates have worked in the tax field for many years, why is it just now that they are starting the process of earning EA credential. The most common answer we got is “I have never found time”.
This answer can be confusing because the time it takes to prepare for the EA exam can be incredibly manageable. These tax professionals may have had their own EA several years ago and could use it to increase their income potential and offer new services to their clients year-round. Or else you can also start as a fresher where you don’t need any accounting background. Taking the step forward to take the EA exam takes commitment, no doubt about it.
But the actual training time may be much shorter than you think. At iLead Tax Academy, we have found that by providing accurate and targeted material, students can often complete each part within less time with the help of instructions. With an EA-expert guided US taxation course you can be acknowledged with all the key concepts and tax laws. Depending on your experience, this may take even less time.
Go ahead, open your calendar, and scroll forward four months. If you start now, your finger should land sometime in November. Add or take a month or two for the final eligibility check and you might get EA status and have plenty of time before tax season starts!
You, because you have a huge advantage! If you still have something to spare, working towards the Enrolled Agent Exam now can help you succeed and increase your income for the rest of your career. Taking the Enrolled Agent Exam throughout the year is the best way to cut down on your research and get paid faster.
Reasons Why You Should Study for Enrolled Agents after Tax Season?
The most recent tax laws are considered
There is a reason the enrolled agent exam is not usually offered during March & April. While tax preparers are working so hard to serve their clients, the IRS and Prometric are working hard to update the exam to reflect the latest tax laws.
Tax laws that were in effect until December 31 of last year will become verifiable in May next year. This means that you must strive to pass all three parts of the EA exam within one year to be tested under the same tax laws.
As a tax preparer, you have just finished working with this version of tax law for the tax season. You will know all the subtleties and context for any new (for you) information that you learn.
Since you will already begin your studies with more knowledge, you will be able to learn faster and more efficiently. If you then take an adaptive EA course, it can mean significantly less training time and faster certification as an agent!
The EA Exam preparation is a bit more flexible with adaptive learning
While the average EA candidate might not spend more than 2 hours a day preparing for the Enrolled Agent exam, if you’re already used to working long hours, finding time to study will become easier. In fact, it alleviates the fears of many candidates about when they will go to study. By looking at your schedule during peak season, you can see what is available for you to study.
Waiting to start school until you adjust to your normal routine can be dangerous because it is difficult to see the points in your daily schedule that you can change. It’s one thing to have time “freely available” and just do something. Another is to get it before you can start.
If you’re filling your free time with personal and professional commitments, it’s easy to put off your studies for another week, month, or year. Of course, preparation for the Enrolled Agent exam is a bit more flexible than working during tax season.
There would never be a time when you are not busy
Because spring is so hectic, many tax inspectors see this as their only busy season, when in fact they are busy all year round.
The later you wait to get started, the higher the risk that you will have to go through another tax season without your registered agent certification and have to wait until tax season to pass the exam. Candidates for the Enrolled Agents exam have two years to pass all three parts of the exam, so a long break also means you risk losing points for sections you may have already passed!
Regardless of when you start your studies, you will need to get the most out of every minute. By choosing the best exam preparation course, you can study more effectively and become an expert faster!
