Welcome to The Illinois Society of Enrolled Agents [ILSEA]

We are Illinois’ Tax Experts!

Enrolled Agents are federally-authorized tax professionals who:

  • Have technical expertise in the field of taxation and
  • Are empowered by the U.S. Department of the Treasury to represent taxpayers before all administrative levels of the IRS for audits, collections, and appeals.
  • Enrolled Agents prepare tax returns for:
    • Individuals
    • Small businesses
    • Corporations, trusts, and estates
  • Plus they act on behalf of taxpayers with tax issues before the IRS or state taxing authorities.

Whether you are a taxpayer or a tax professional, you will find useful tax information here.
