Online PR News – 01-August-2012 – DENVER, CO – Melinda Coburn, EA, a Broomfield, CO tax expert with 20/20 Tax Resolution, met with Pennsylvania and Colorado Congress staff members in Washington to discuss the need to stabilize the tax code.
Melinda Coburn, a tax professional in the Denver area, holds the enrolled agent (EA) designation from the US Department of the Treasury. Enrolled agents are the only federally-licensed tax practitioners who specialize in taxation and also have unlimited rights to represent taxpayers before the IRS. While attorneys and certified public accountants are also licensed, only enrolled agents specialize exclusively in taxes. Enrolled agents are America’s tax experts.
By personally calling on the Washington offices of Reps. Jason Altmire, Mark Udall, Jared Polis and Cory Gardner, Coburn participated in a true grass roots effort to promote the tax preparer profession and protect the American taxpayer. Many of the provisions in the current tax code are not permanent, making it difficult for both businesses and individuals to develop annual plans that allow them to lower their tax burden through smart tax strategies.
“I was greatly encouraged by my visits with the Congressmen’s staff members,” Coburn said, “Sensible tax policy, tax administration and tax enforcement are critical to this country, the business community and individual taxpayers. We need to be involved in the legislative process and the agency rulemaking process to ensure the best outcome.”
Coburn participated in the “Fly-In Day,” an annual event developed by the National Association of Enrolled Agents (NAEA) to educate legislators about issues affecting tax return preparers and obstacles preventing the tax code from being fairly applied and reasonably enforced. As a member of NAEA, Coburn must adhere to a code of professional conduct and meet annual continuing education requirements that surpass those established by the IRS.
