Darrell has been in the income tax preparation industry since 1992, over 23 years! He started out working with one of the major national income tax preparation chains eventually becoming an instructor with them. Since that time he has taught for another national chain and worked with other local tax preparation and CPA firms. In 1999, he passed the Enrollment Examination (a grueling 2-day test administered by the IRS) and earned recognition as an Enrolled Agent. This exam and consequent E.A. status represents proficiency in the field and grants certain representation rights that otherwise are afforded only CPA's, Attorneys and Enrolled Actuaries. Darrell, along with the other associates of ATAA must keep up on ever changing tax law requiring substantial yearly continuing education. Darrell's Motto: Integrity, Accuracy & Honesty. These are absolute minimum requirements to be successful in tax preparation industry.
