Secondly, I am an accountant, with a B.A. in Law, and a certified Enrolled Agent.
Over the years I have gained experience in the Israeli, American and international taxation fields.
I have earned the loyalty of clients in Israel, North America, Europe (and a few in Australia).
A quick word for those of us who are not familiar with the term Enrolled Agent:
A few years ago, I completed my training in Israel as an accountant.
In its classic definition, an accountant is a person who gives his professional opinion on the financial reports of a company. After discovering that this is an incredibly boring field, I quickly switched to taxation and have been working on it ever since.
Shortly after arriving in the USA, I understood that I have no intention of working with financial reports, and therefore had no need to obtain the local CPA certification (in spite of the fact that most people believe that the accountant has full control in the taxation field, it is actually not the accountant’s primary role).
So, I searched the highest certification in the US tax field, and discovered that that is Enrolled Agent.
Here is the exact information from the Certified Tax Agent Union:
Enrolled agents (EAs) are America’s Tax Experts®. EAs are the only federally licensed tax practitioners who specialize in taxation and also have unlimited rights to represent taxpayers. before the IRS.
My next step is obtaining a New York law license…I’ll get there.
I have built my reputation and client list from scratch, with my own two hands. I refuse to take money from a client who claims that they are not 100% satisfied with my work. I take my work very personally and it is most important to me to work with honest and moral people.
