Tax Accounting

Tax Accounting refers to accounting for tax purposes in the United States. Unlike most countries, the U.S. has a comprehensive set of accounting principles for tax purposes, prescribed by tax law, which are separate and distinct from Generally Accepted Accounting Principles.

The difference between the LTC license and the EA license is that EA is a national license whereas LTC is a state designation.

  • LTC: Licensed Tax Consultant. An LTC can only represent tax returns they prepared and originally signed.
  • EA: Enrolled Agent with IRS. An EA can represent a taxpayer in any interaction with the IRS, without the taxpayer being present, regardless of whether or not the EA prepared the original tax return.
