Meet Our Awesome Team

Ellen M. Crowell, E.A.

Ellen M. Crowell, E.A.

Founder & CEO

Ellen graduated from Penn State Brandywine campus with her degree in Accounting. After passing a three-part comprehensive IRS test covering individual and business tax returns, she became an enrolled agent, allowing her to represent her clients in certain tax matters. Enrolled agent status is the highest credential the IRS awards. Individuals who obtain this elite status must adhere to ethical standards and complete continuing education credits every three years. This means Ellen stays current on the newest tax law developments and reform.

Since becoming an E.A. her career has focused on Public Accounting for a myriad of clientele in a wide variety of industries. In 2009, Ellen had the opportunity to open her own practice in Kennett Square, so she could work closer to home and serve her community, while she and her husband raised their three daughters. Premier Tax continues to flourish to this day, where they support the businesses and residents of Kennett Square, by relieving them of their tax stress.
