An Indiana tax power of attorney form, or “Form POA – 1,” is a legal document allowing an individual to designate a representative to handle their tax affairs with the Indiana Department of Revenue.
This form grants the representative the authority to file tax returns, obtain tax information, and communicate with the Department on behalf of the taxpayer. The form may assign either a general or limited authority, and it allows for up to four representatives to be appointed.
Once the form is executed, the Department will communicate primarily with the representative(s) for a period of five years unless it is revoked by written notice. Residents are advised to seek professional help from a certified public accountant or tax attorney when completing the form to ensure compliance with Indiana’s tax system.
Signing Requirements — Taxpayer.
Statute — Title 30, Article 5 (Powers of Attorney)
