Profile

All tax preparers at Veritas Tax Solutions are committed to keeping abreast of current tax laws and regulations through continuing education. In addition, Miri and Darci have earned their Enrolled Agent credentials from the IRS which further emphasizes their commitment to the profession. Maintaining this credential requires many hours of continuing education each year. Enrolled agents, like 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 which IRS offices in which they can represent clients.
