Virginia Tax Power of Attorney Form

The Virginia tax power of attorney form is a document that would be completed by a taxpayer to appoint an individual or business entity as their Agent so that they may complete their tax forms and, if needed, the Agent may represent the taxpayer before the Department of Revenue. The document will allow an Agent to request and review sensitive financial information and will likely authorize the Agent to sign on behalf of the taxpayer. All signatures must be entered or the form will be returned.

Unless otherwise stated by the Principal, this document will revoke all other tax powers documents.
