A Wyoming tax power of attorney form lets a taxpayer, the “principal,” appoint a tax professional, an accountant, a lawyer, or someone else to represent them in their tax affairs.
Since Wyoming doesn’t have a state income tax or a specific state form, individuals can simply use the IRS Form 2848 (Power of Attorney and Declaration of Representative) to appoint a representative to represent them in tax matters.
Taxpayers should choose trusted individuals as their representatives to avoid the consequences of any misuse. Depending on what authorities the principal grants, the agent might be able to contest deficiencies, receive confidential information, post bonds, and file tax returns on the principal’s behalf for a specific period.
Signing Requirements — Taxpayer and agent.
Statute — WY Stat. § 3-9-216.
