The Arkansas tax power of attorney is a document with which a taxpayer authorizes a third party to manage their tax filings and represent them before the Arkansas Department of Finance and Administration. Taxpayers can grant their representative(s) the authority to accept and review sensitive tax information and perform any other action necessary to handle the tax matters designated in the power of attorney. However, the representative’s authority does not permit them to sign the taxpayer’s returns, request a tax return disclosure, receive refund checks, add or substitute other representatives, or disclose tax information to unauthorized parties. Once properly executed, the power of attorney must be mailed or faxed to the office(s) where each tax matter is handled.
