Ken Lewis was an IRS Revenue Officer for 20 years. As a Revenue Officer, he enforced the collection of back taxes owed by individuals and businesses. He garnished wages and bank accounts, and seized assets from taxpayers and sold them for the government to pay their back taxes. He also wrote off millions of dollars of tax debt for taxpayers who settled their debt with the government. He knows the ins and outs of the IRS Collection Division, and uses these skills to help his clients achieve a workable solution to their tax problems.
Ken is an Enrolled Agent, licensed by the Internal Revenue Service. The Enrolled Agent credential is the highest license that is awarded to tax practitioners by the Internal Revenue Service. Enrolled Agents must demonstrate that they have a strong working knowledge of the tax laws of the United States. They must pass three rigorous tax-law exams to prove their competence and skill. In addition, they must pass a rigorous background check conducted by the U.S. Department of the Treasury. Ken is licensed to practice in all 50 states and can represent any taxpayer before the IRS or State taxing authority regarding any matter of Federal or State taxation. Ken must continually maintain his tax knowledge and proficiency by taking at least 30 hours of continuing tax-education classes per year. Because of the high level of expertise in tax law that is required to become an Enrolled Agent, and the requirements to maintain their license, there are only about 50,000 Enrolled Agents in America.
Ken is a graduate of the University of Maine, and Ferris State University, in Big Rapids, Michigan. He has a bachelor’s degree in Business Administration and Marketing. He is a member of the National Association of Enrolled agents, and a United States Air Force veteran.
