Josh Youngblood, EA, CTRS, NTPI

Josh Youngblood, EA, CTRS, NTPI, began his business career over 25 years ago, starting his first company at age 15. Business and technology have always been Josh’s passions, with taxation a particular area of interest. He decided to focus on taxation and representing all taxpayers with US tax responsibilities. His grandmother was a long-time EA, and Josh saw her help many clients who felt burdened and overwhelmed by IRS obligations and audits. After passing all three EA exams on his first attempt, Josh received his license to practice before the IRS. One of his happiest moments was being able to tell his grandmother about this achievement. Since the inception of The Youngblood Group, LLC, Josh has had many wonderful opportunities to help small businesses navigate business challenges during a global pandemic.

Josh regularly completes in excess of 70 hours per year of continuing education so that he can stay up to date with the ever-changing world of taxation. He recently graduated from the National Tax Practice Institute and is an NTPI Fellow. He is also a CTRS (Certified Tax Resolution Specialist) having passed a rigorous exam from the American Society of Tax Problem Solvers.

Josh is a proud member of the NAEA (National Association of Enrolled Agents) where he serves as co-chair of the Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion committee. Additional memberships include ASTPS (American Society of Tax Problem Solvers), NATP (National Association of Tax Professionals), and the North Texas LGBT Chamber of Commerce.

When Josh isn’t helping clients or working on continuing education, he enjoys spending time with family and traveling as much as possible.
