The problem with working with an Enrolled Agent is that, unlike an attorney, nothing you say to them is confidential. The IRS can compel them to testify against the client. I used one years ago. They discovered that I had handled something improperly on my taxes and threatened to turn me in and collect what they called a "reward" from the IRS. It was an honest mistake. I amended my return and sent it back to the IRS with an explanation for the error and there was no penalty. I have never trusted accountants and enrolled agents since that day. I go to a tax professional to help me solve problems not to threaten me.
When I give the IRS my SS# XXXXX the IRS with my application for an EIN, am I exposing myself to any other specific risks? My brother, an attorney, tells me that they won't be able to come in and take assets from the corporation. I presume that all I am doing is guaranteeing the payment of employment taxes and corporate taxes as any corporate officer would.
I am the only employee of the corporation and I understand that I have to keep current on the taxes. I just wanted to be sure that my personal tax situation wouldn't affect the corporation since there is more than one person involved with it. I don't want my situation to tie them up at all.
