A TAX PROFESSIONAL YOU CAN TRUST – SANDRA TORRENCE, EA
Choosing a tax preparer is a crucial and very personal decision that should
be made with a great deal of care. After all, this is someone to whom you
are entrusting your personal and financial information. You should feel
confident that your information will be kept confidential and know that your
best interests are assured–today, tomorrow and in the future.
I have been an Enrolled Agent (EA) since 1999. “Enrolled” means to be
licensed to practice by the federal government (the IRS) and “agent” means
authorized to appear in place of the taxpayer before the IRS. Only enrolled
agents, attorneys, and certified public accountants may represent all
taxpayers before the IRS. The enrolled agent profession dates back to
1884 when, after questionable claims were presented for Civil War losses,
Congress acted to regulate persons who represented citizens in their dealings
with the U.S. Department of the Treasury. Enrolled Agents are required to
abide by the provisions of the Circular 230 which provides the regulations
governing the practice of enrolled agents before the IRS–these regulations
apply not only to correct practice but to ethical behavior.
I started my business in 1985 and have been in the same location ever since.
I have been a member of the National Association of Tax Professionals
(NATP) since 1988 and am currently on the Florida NATP Board of Directors
as Treasurer. NATP provides educational seminars to tax
practitioners on both the national and state levels and offers members
access to extensive tax research knowledge. As an EA I have an annual
continuing education requirement to meet.
I want to emphasize that your goals and concerns are of the utmost
importance to me. I am committed to providing superior services and solutions
that go well beyond tax preparation. You can depend on me to find new and
creative ways to help reduce your taxes to the minimum allowable, according to
