A Georgia tax power of attorney form (RD-1061), also known as the “Georgia Department of Revenue Power of Attorney and Declaration of Representative,” is a legal document that empowers a taxpayer or “principal” to appoint an agent or “attorney-in-fact,” to manage tax-related affairs with the Georgia Department of Revenue. This document enables the agent to handle tax filings, respond to inquiries, sign documents, make deposits, and access taxpayer information on their behalf.
Completing the form requires providing detailed information about both the taxpayer and the appointed agent, including their names, addresses, and taxpayer identification numbers. The taxpayer explicitly outlines the powers granted to the agent and can choose to limit or specify the scope of authority within the document.
If the representatives aren’t licensed tax professionals, the taxpayer must sign the power of attorney in the presence of a notary public. Upon completion, any other power of attorney documents relating to the same tax matters and periods will be automatically revoked unless specifically indicated otherwise.
Signing Requirements — Principal, attorney-in-fact, notary public.
Statute — § 10-6B-55.
