A Texas limited power of attorney is a form that legally authorizes an individual to perform certain duties for a principal (person who executes the document). This type of power of attorney is limited in that the agent named in the document can only perform the tasks specifically outlined in the form. Furthermore, this document is not durable, so it will terminate once the principal loses their capacity for decision-making. While there are limited power of attorney forms created for taxes, motor vehicles, and real estate, this particular document enables the principal to grant very specific assignments for their agent.
