How do I apply to take the exam?
IRS has outsourced the management of the EA Exam to an independent testing firm called Prometrics. We have created a special page just for you that outlines what you will need to do to apply for the IRS EA Exam.
What is your shipping policy?
All Materials will be shipped within 3 business days, starting after April 18, 2017
All materials are shipped out via USPS Priority Mail, FOB TaxMama’s® location. They should arrive at your location within three days, unless you are off the USPS beaten path, in which case it may take longer. If you do NOT receive your materials within three days, please contact TaxMama’s office IMMEDIATELY for the tracking information.
Note: We will send your package to the shipping address you provide in your registration. It is your responsibility to provide accurate information. If you do not receive the package due to USPS error or your error, it is your responsibility to sort it out with the USPS. We will reship materials – but you will have to pay for them. You may, of course, file a claim with the USPS for delivering the materials to the wrong place. If you tend to have problems receiving mail as a matter of course, let us know and we will provide you with a quote for the additional cost to insure your package – or for other shipment services.
However, if you do not receive your materials because we typed the wrong address into the label – we will reship at our expense.
Will I pass if I don’t know anything about tax and have no experience?
No. It’s for people who already have experience and education when it comes it taxation. If you want an education, go to college. Although, TaxMama’s® Solving the Tax Puzzle sessions do a great job of giving you sound fundamentals in tax law, tax preparation and client management.
Also, it is true, that many people have passed the EA Exam just by taking this class, without any experience or tax education. But they worked their buns off and studied intensely for three or four whole months! We can’t promise that you will pass the first time. But you’ll get one heck of an education – and you’ll learn how to be a great tax professional! And you’ll get three more shots at passing the exam this year. So, odds are, if you do the work, you’ll pass during this testing window which runs from May 1st and closes at the end of the following February.
