What Is an IRS Power of Attorney?

An IRS power of attorney (POA) is a document that appoints a tax professional or attorney the legal right to represent you. The actions of the legal representative in the case are heavily contingent on the parameters of the document. For instance, if you, the principal of the case, grant a legal representative to make financial decisions on your behalf, they cannot also make medical decisions on your behalf – unless specified in the POA document.

How Do I File A Power of Attorney with the IRS?

In order to file an IRS power of attorney, you will need to submit Form 2848, Power of Attorney and Declaration of Representative. Once signed, your tax attorney is granted the right to legally represent you before the IRS and obtain any tax information needed for your case. When you submit a Form 2848, it is included on the IRS Centralized Authorization File (CAF), which helps an IRS personnel determine whether you have authorized a legal representative for your case if they do not have access to your POA.

How Long Does It Take for the IRS To Process 2848?

Typically, it takes about 5 to 10 days for the IRS power of attorney to process if submitted via mail. You can always speed up the process by three days when you fax instead of mailing your Form 2848 or 8821. There are also e-services available online that offer a much faster way of authorizing tax professionals to represent you before the IRS. Included in the e-services are a variety of applications to help your tax attorney to help you win your case.
