Idaho Power of Attorney Forms

Idaho power of attorney forms cover a range of estate planning options for people who wish to transfer certain powers and responsibilities to a trusted agent. This agent, or “attorney-in-fact,” is bound by the power of attorney form to keep the principal’s best interests in mind while performing their duties. An agent might be appointed to handle the principal’s finances, taxes, real estate, or even make medical decisions on their behalf. Because an attorney-in-fact is authorized to handle potentially life-altering assignments for the principal, it’s important that they are a trusted and capable individual.
