"An Enrolled Agent that is also an Attorney, unlike other attorneys and certified public accountants (CPAs), have unlimited practice rights. This means they are unrestricted as to which taxpayers they can represent, what types of tax matters they can handle, and before which IRS jurisdiction they can represent clients.
*An enrolled agent is a person who has earned the privilege of representing taxpayers before the Internal Revenue Service by either passing a three-part comprehensive IRS test covering individual and business tax returns, or through experience as a former IRS employee.
Enrolled agent status is the highest credential the IRS awards. Individuals who obtain this elite status must adhere to ethical standards and complete 72 hours of continuing education courses every three years. "
Probate is a procedure that is designed to Protect against Improper use of the assets of the estate of a deceased person, by insuring it is Properly distributed according to Law, or the Will of the recently deceased.
It is a court procedure whereby the distribution of a person's assets after death is supervised and controlled. During the process, it is required that certain parties, usually family members and / or those named in the Will (if a Will exists) receive copies of most documents filed with probate court for their review.
California has many agencies that collect taxes: the Franchise Tax Board "FTB", the Employment Development Department "EDD", the State Board of Equalization "SBE", and more.
All of these agencies have broad powers given to them by law to collect taxes. They zealously seek out those they feel owe taxes and are relentless in their efforts to collect them. These agencies are resolved to be taken seriously and their actions indicate so.
Whether you feel that you owe IRS or FTB taxes, or not, if you receive any correspondence or other communication from them, you should promptly address the matter and enlist the assistance of a professional, especially if the amount at issue is large or if there are threats of criminal proceedings.
