A Florida tax power of attorney form, or “Form DR-835,” enables a taxpayer or “principal” to designate another person or entity as their representative or “attorney-in-fact” for tax-related matters. This form allows the appointed agent to act on behalf of the taxpayer before the Florida Department of Revenue.
The authorized agent can handle tax filings, respond to inquiries, access taxpayer information, and represent the taxpayer in discussions or negotiations with the DOR. The taxpayer has the option to specify the years during which the representative can seek information.
The document does not need to be witnessed or notarized. It needs to be sent via mail or fax to the relevant office or representative handling specific tax matters or directly mailed to the Florida Department of Revenue for reemployment tax matters.
Signing Requirements — Principal and representative.
