Dianna Beck, EA (Owner)
Let me give you a little background about myself. My husband, Donnie, and I moved from Atlanta, Georgia to Sandpoint, Idaho in 2010. I worked as a commercial real estate manager in my former life and I absolutely hated it! But I couldn’t complain because it paid the bills and put me through college. After seven years of blood, sweat and tears (and an amazingly supportive husband), I graduated with my Bachelor’s Degree in Accounting. It was one of the best accomplishments of my life. Shortly afterward, Donnie and I read a book called 48 Days to the Work You Love by Dan Miller. This book changed our life! We learned that we had a purpose and a calling! There is more to life than just paying bills and surviving. It’s what got us to take a leap of faith and move to Sandpoint, Idaho, a gorgeous mountain paradise that I had only dreamed about. This is where I found my calling. I worked as an accountant for a local CPA firm and fell in love with all aspects of taxation. I know it’s weird, but I did. In short order, I sat for the exams to became a federally licensed Enrolled Agent. After having worked in taxes for several years, I took another leap of faith and started my own tax practice, Allegro Tax Services, LLC. It has been an adventure for sure but I wouldn’t trade it for the world!
What is an Enrolled Agent (EA)?
Enrolled agents (EAs) are America’s Tax Experts. They are the only federally licensed tax practitioners who specialize in taxation and also have unlimited rights to represent taxpayers before the IRS. EA status is granted after passing three rigorous exams administered by the IRS. Unlike attorneys and CPAs, who are state licensed and who may or may not choose to specialize in taxes, all enrolled agents specialize in taxation. EAs may represent their clients before the IRS on any matter including IRS audits, collections, payment issues, tax refund matters and appeals. Enrolled agents are required to abide by the provisions of the Department of Treasury’s Circular 230, which provides the regulations governing the practice of enrolled agents before the IRS. ~ NAEA.org
