With Canopy launching a CPE course platform, we’ve had the chance to work with different tax and accounting thought leaders to add their unique insights to our course catalog. One of those thought leaders is Tanya Baber.

Years of accounting experience
Tanya’s first career goal was to become a music teacher, but she didn’t think she could generate enough income with that, so she swapped notes for numbers and never looked back. Tanya has been an enrolled agent since 2006 and a Canopy partner for the past few years, though her experience in accounting and taxation spans 25 years. She received her bachelor’s degree in public accounting and business administration from Colorado Mesa University. In addition to being an EA, she is also a certified tax resolution specialist (CTRS) and a NTPI (National Tax Practice Institute) Fellow.
Currently, Tanya works as a senior tax consultant for Tax Edge and practices in the areas of personal, business, and non-profit tax preparation, planning, consulting and representation. She also consults with a variety of accountants and assists them with casework concerns and questions for their own clients.
Additionally, she is a member of many organizations including:
- National Society of Accountants (NSA)
- The American Society of Tax Problem Solvers (ASTPS)
- The National Society of Tax Professionals (NSTP)
- National Association of Tax Professionals (NATP)
A love for education and service
Beyond doing tax work, Tanya is dedicated to helping others —whether it’s through teaching other tax and accounting pros or volunteering for Search and Rescue. She teaches advanced classes to CPAs, accountants, and enrolled agents. She’s particularly passionate about helping practitioners who are just starting out in tax resolution.
We’re happy to have Tanya as a CPE instructor. Currently, she offers courses about offer in compromise, penalty abatement, cybersecurity, and more.
