DOR > Tax Professionals > Power of Attorney Procedures and Revised Form Power of Attorney Procedures and Revised Form

Effective May 21, 2007, the Indiana Department of Revenue issued a revised Power of Attorney (POA-1) form and adopted new procedures for accepting POA authorizations. The form and procedures are intended to balance the need to ensure taxpayer information is secure with the need representatives have in assisting their clients.

Taxpayers wishing to authorize a representative to have Power of Attorney on their behalf for state tax matters need to know the following:

A properly completed POA-1 form must be submitted in one of the following formats to the department:

  • A hardcopy of the original,
  • A faxed copy, or
  • A signed, electronic image (PDF, JPEG, GIF, etc.) of the form.

Only when the department has received the properly completed POA-1 can a department employee speak with the representative about the specific tax type and period indicated in the POA-1 form. Please note that the POA-1 form does not need to be notarized.
