An Iowa tax power of attorney form, or “Form IA 2848,” is used if you are a taxpayer in Iowa and you wish to appoint a representative to receive confidential tax information and perform tasks on your behalf.
You can appoint up to two representatives who are authorized to receive confidential tax information, sign documents, and represent you in proceedings before the Iowa Department of Revenue. It is important to mention on the form which tax type(s) and corresponding tax year(s) or periods your representatives are authorized to manage.
To avoid mistakes and discrepancies that can lead to penalties, appointing a professional accountant as your representative is recommended.
If you wish to cancel the power of attorney, you can file a statement of revocation, or your representative can withdraw by submitting their statement to the Iowa Department of Revenue.
Signing Requirements — Taxpayer(s).
