The Georgia tax power of attorney (Form RD-1061) is used to designate one (1) or more individuals to represent a taxpayer and handle matters involving the Georgia Department of Revenue. The representative(s) appointed in the document receive authorization to inspect the taxpayer’s confidential information, sign documents, file returns, make deposits, and conduct any other lawful transaction permitted by the taxpayer.
Unless the representatives are licensed tax professionals (e.g., certified public accountant, attorney-at-law), the taxpayer will need to sign the power of attorney in the presence of a notary public. All other power of attorney documents covering the same tax matters and tax years/periods as this document will be revoked upon its completion unless explicitly stated otherwise.
Signing Requirements – Taxpayer, Representative(s), Notary Public
Statute – § 10-6B-55
