I have an undergraduate degree in finance from San Diego State University and a Masters in Taxation from Cal State East Bay (Formerly known as Hayward State University). I’m also a graduate of the National Tax Practice Institute.
I’m actively involved with the Mission Society of Enrolled Agents (MSEA), California Society of Enrolled Agents (CSEA) and I’m serving as Secretary/Treasurer of the National Association of Enrolled Agents (NAEA).
EAs are federally licensed whereas CPAs are licensed state-by-state. Enrolled agents specialize in tax returns.
