The Principal of Cherrington Tax Solutions is Michael W Cherrington. He has been preparing taxes professionally since 1986 and has been an Enrolled Agent since 2002. During most of that time he worked for a large tax preparation company performing a variety of tax services and teaching tax classes during the off season. He is also a 20 year veteran of the US Navy, a senior engineer for Westinghouse and an accounting manager.
He decided to found Cherrington Tax Solutions after becoming embarrassed to tell clients how much they owed for his services. His services are indeed valuable, and the company he worked for provides additional value on a year round basis; but, they wanted to position themselves as the Nordstrom’s of tax services, leaving the Walmart shoppers behind. Most taxpayers only need the hour they meet with their preparer once a year. He will give you the Nordstrom quality but at Walmart prices.
An enrolled agent (EA) is a federally-authorized tax practitioner who has technical expertise in the field of taxation and who is empowered by the U.S. Department of the Treasury to represent taxpayers before all administrative levels—examination, collection, and appeals—of the Internal Revenue Service. In addition to taxpayer representation, enrolled agents often provide tax consultation services and prepare a wide range of federal and state tax returns.
Mr. Cherrington is a National Tax Practice Institure Fellow having successfully completing over 72 hours of study and training specifically for the purpose of representing taxpayers before the IRS. The National Tax Practice Institute™ (NTPI) teaches enrolled agents, CPAs, and tax attorneys how to represent their clients. Representation requires expertise in the tax code as well as knowledge of the system and how it works. Clients deserve the best defense possible, and this requires continual education and review, as well as a robust network of expert colleagues who are willing to offer advice and assistance as needed. Enrolled agents receive their right to represent taxpayers directly from the U.S. Treasury, after proving in-depth knowledge of the IRS tax code through examination.
