The Colorado Society of Enrolled Agents is a professional membership organization dedicated to representing, promoting and enhancing the Enrolled Agent profession. Enrolled Agents are equipped to handle the most complex tax returns for individuals, partnerships, corporations and LLCs, and are nationally enrolled to represent tax payers before all administrative levels of the Internal Revenue Service.
Enrolled Agents provide much more than just tax preparation. We work with taxpayers to solve your audit and tax problems. Many provide tax planning, well before the tax return is to be filed. Some provide guidance for new business startups and business consulting. Some Enrolled Agents offer bookkeeping, account, payroll services, estate planning, financial planning or investment services.
Foremost, Enrolled Agents are tax specialists. Whether for individual or business income taxes, payroll taxes, sales taxes, personal property or estate taxes, look to an Enrolled Agent to find a tax expert and the help you need!
The members of CoSEA’s elected leadership team convened in retreat to sort out and collectively foster an action plan for the coming year. We generally believe that as a direct result of the connections individually forged between members our organization will continue to grow stronger through member unity. Our goal as the elected leadership team is to make it more convenient for members to regularly come together, commiserate, and connect over the trials and tribulations endured through our respective journeys as America’s Tax Experts. We want our members to be enriched by formal curriculum as well as by sharing of experiences. In pursuit of this goal we intend to:
1. Promote the EA designation state wide
2. Provide even more educational seminars
3. Offer more variety in the regular monthly meeting venue
4. Facilitate member-to-member connections
5. Grow membership ranks
Inside this 5 point plan there is plenty to do and enough room for contributions of all shapes and sizes so don’t hesitate - hop on board! We're looking forward to a great new year for our industry and our organization!

As you are likely aware, the IRS has updated Circular 230. They recently put together some guidance for practitioners on the subject. While no substitute for a good review of the complete Circular230, the guidance can be found here. If you'd like a video review here's an IRS webinar that provides a pretty good overview as well.
