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 Business and Excise Taxes, taxpayers may complete a POA-1 Form. For all other DOF matters, for example, a property tax payment agreement or a parking matter, a POA-2 Form should be completed. DOF will also accept other validly executed powers of attorney.

Download the POA-1 Form.

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