A Massachusetts tax power of attorney form, otherwise known as Form M-2848, is a document that enables taxpayers to delegate their tax matters to one or more representatives.
The authorized representative(s) can receive communications from the Department of Revenue, submit tax filings, and perform any action related to tax matters that the taxpayer could normally do themselves. The form requires accurate and legal information about the concerned parties and the powers being delegated.
Note that the authorities granted in the document are limited to the designated tax type and years.
Signing Requirements — Taxpayer, their representative(s), and two witnesses or a notary public must sign. Non-attorney representatives require two witnesses or a notary public.
