IRS releases new enrolled agent logo

Written on May 11, 2018

The IRS is providing a new enrolled agent (EA) logo that EAs may use in marketing materials.

The new logo replaces a logo IRS created in 2012. While use of the new logo is optional, use of the prior logo must cease. The prior logo contains a likeness of a government insignia, which by law limits its use to officers and employees of departments and agencies of the United States.

EAs have until Oct. 31, 2018, to discontinue use of the logo containing the IRS eagle. The old logo may not appear in any publications, advertising, websites, business cards or other communications with clients or prospective clients.

For further guidance on marketing materials, please refer to Circular 230, particularly § 10.30 regarding Solicitation.

Active enrolled agents can obtain the logo by emailing a request to epp@irs.gov with the subject line “EA logo."
