A South Dakota limited power of attorney is used to grant powers to an attorney-in-fact so they may perform certain tasks for the principal (person who has executed the document). The attorney-in-fact, also referred to as the principal’s agent, must act in the principal’s best interest and only operate within the confines of the power of attorney document. The form will be revoked when the agent completes their duties, or it will terminate on a specific date established by the principal. Furthermore, the principal may terminate the power of attorney by completing a revocation form at any time.
