The New York tax power of attorney (Form POA-1) is a form that allows a taxpayer to grant a representative permission to handle tax matters on their behalf. A firm itself may not act as a representative, however, a firm’s employee may be selected. The representative must be an individual such as a CPA or attorney. This form does not automatically revoke any prior executed powers of attorney, but it may affect who receives communication from the New York State Department of Taxation and Finance. This power of attorney shall remain active until either the representative withdraws from representing the taxpayer or the taxpayer revokes the POA.
