The Florida tax power of attorney (Form DR 835) is used by taxpayers to authorize someone to represent them before the Florida Department of Revenue. Depending on the choices made in the power of attorney, the representative will be appointed to either handle specific tax matters in the designated tax period, or to continuously serve as the taxpayer’s reemployment tax agent (applicable to employers only).
The tax representative is permitted to execute agreements, sign documents, receive and inspect sensitive tax information, request an extension to the statutory period for assessment, and perform any other action authorized by the taxpayer. The completed document must be mailed or faxed to the office or employee overseeing the tax subject (for specific tax matters) or mailed directly to the Florida Department of Revenue (for reemployment tax matters).
