If you have decided to have a tax professional represent you before the IRS and/or the State, here's a simple checklist to use while you shop:

1. Are they a licensed tax professional? Enrolled Agent? Certified Public Accountant? Tax Attorney?

2. Make sure they are NOT strictly a salesperson - these are pretty common with the companies that advertise on TV - these people have no license to keep them honest.

3. Do they have at least 5 years of proven practice on IRS/State collection cases?

4. Do they charge a flat fee? If they take monthly payments over a long period of time, that can be a deal breaker: they may use your unpaid fees as a reason to NOT finish your case.
