Tax professionals associations team up to provide value, meet goals
by AccountingWEB on
The National Association of Enrolled Agents (NAEA) and the Latino Tax Professionals Association (LTPA) have formed a partnership to provide increased value to their members and to meet common goals.
“By offering mutual discounts on dues and continuing professional education, members of each group receive new benefits of membership,” Michael S. Nelson, NAEA executive vice president, said in a news release.
In addition to the discounts, a priority joint project is a version of NAEA’s Special Enrollment Exam (SEE) prep course with a Spanish-speaking moderator to facilitate Latino tax professionals who are interested in earning the enrolled-agent (EA) designation.
NAEA is the professional society representing tax preparers who have earned the distinction of enrolled agent by passing a challenging three-part exam, fulfilling continuing education requirements and agreeing to abide by a code of ethics. EAs are federally licensed to represent taxpayers before the IRS.
LTPA was formed to serve Latino professionals who work in all areas of tax practice, including individual practitioners, accounting and bookkeeping services, enrolled agents, certified public accountants, and immigration attorneys. In joining forces, the associations hope to advance their common goals of providing top-flight member services and promoting excellence in tax preparation.
“Both LTPA and NAEA are dedicated to helping our members grow their practices and increase their profits, and to offering the best education, leadership, and business skill training available,” said Carlos Lopez, LTPA founder and president. “With this partnership, each of us expands our ability to fulfill those goals.”
