  • Legal Assistance for lawyer referrals and answers to questions about the law and courts

The Department of Finance (DOF) requires a Power of Attorney (POA) if someone, such as a lawyer or accountant, is seeking information or filing something on behalf of a business or other entity. A POA is also required if you want to grant someone else the authorization to request copies of filed business tax returns or discuss a case with DOF.

For example, a lawyer or accountant might need POA.

Taxpayers may complete a POA-1 Form for:

  • Business taxes
  • Excise taxes

For all other DOF matters, a POA-2 should be completed.

These include:

  • Property tax payment agreements
  • Parking matters

Download the POA-1 Form.

Download the POA-2 Form.

The Department of Finance (DOF) only handles Power of Attorney questions related to DOF business tax matters.
