NYS Tax Department Simplifies its Power of Attorney (POA) Form and Process
Based on feedback from tax professionals and taxpayers, the NYS Tax Department recently revised Form POA-1, Power of Attorney, and implemented a power of attorney (POA) web application to make it easy to file. The changes are part of the department’s ongoing effort to make its forms more user-friendly and to enhance its operational efficiency.
POA Web Application
Taxpayers and representatives can now create and submit Form POA-1, Power of Attorney, generated by a new POA web application using their Online Services accounts.
The web application:
• guides you through the process to help ensure that your POA is completed accurately;
• pre-populates information on file for the taxpayer; and
• is the quickest and easiest way to file Form POA-1.
