The New Jersey tax power of attorney (Form M-5008-R) is used when an individual or company wishes to designate a representative to handle tax matters before the New Jersey Division of Taxation on their behalf. This form allows the taxpayer to specify the tax matters and periods for which they require representation. By executing this document, the taxpayer is revoking all previously filed M-5008-R forms that coincide with the same tax matter(s) and period(s) covered in the most current tax power of attorney, unless indicated on the form. This power of attorney is not required in the case where a representative is simply preparing a reporting or filing a return.
