Russell Barnett, EA Inc is a tax consulting firm located in San Jose, CA. I specialize in interpreting the tax code into plain English for my individual and business clients throughout the United States and helping them understand and meet their federal and state tax obligations without paying more than they have to.
I passed the difficult two day exam administered by the Internal Revenue Service in 2004 and was subsequently awarded the designation of Enrolled Agent by the federal government, granting me the authority to represent taxpayers before all administrative levels of the IRS. In order to maintain my license as an Enrolled Agent I must undertake continuing professional education each year to ensure that I remain current on tax laws, and I am bound by a strict code of ethical conduct set by the Internal Revenue Service. I am proud to be a member of the National Association of Enrolled Agents(NAEA) as well as the California Society of Enrolled Agents (CSEA), and the local Mission chapter of CSEA.
My background includes a Bachelor of Science in Accounting from Golden Gate University, and I have prepared thousands of individual and business returns from across the country, sales taxes, and payroll. I also have extensive experience representating clients in front of the federal and state taxing agencies for non filed returns and past due balances ranging from a few hundred dollars to well over $300,000.
We are proud to be the only tax service in Santa Clara County to have earned the prestigious Diamond Certified designation. We pride ourselves in providing a high level of service to our customers, and the Diamond Certified award is a testiment to this commitment to excellence.
