Jenell Wagner, CMA, assistant professor of accounting at Southwest Baptist University, completed the Enrolled Agent (EA) designation process sponsored by the United States Department of the Treasury.
“Having the Enrolled Agent designation will give me more confidence and credibility in teaching the Tax Accounting class,” Wagner said.
An enrolled agent is a federally authorized tax practitioner empowered by the U.S. Department of the Treasury to represent taxpayers before the Internal Revenue Service. Enrolled agent status is the highest credential awarded by the IRS. EAs are the only federally licensed tax practitioners who specialize in taxation and have unlimited rights to represent taxpayers before the IRS.
“This is a great honor for Mrs. Wagner and our SBU Accounting program,” said Wayne Clark, CPA, chair of the department of accounting. “Her proven expertise in the ever-changing tax law will benefit our students greatly and inspire many to seek professional careers as tax accountants.”
