The Avalara compliance team needs a power of attorney for notices—sometimes called a filing power of attorney—to be able to discuss a tax notice with a jurisdiction. If your power of attorney for a specific tax jurisdiction has expired or we can't find it, we send the form to you and ask you to fill it out. Discrepancy tax notices that are missing a power of attorney are automatically closed if you don't respond within 10 days.
A power of attorney for notices is different than a funding power of attorney.
- Go to Returns > Tax Notices.
- Select Details next to the tax notice that's missing a power of attorney.
- Select the download link to save a copy of the power of attorney for the appropriate state.
You'll notice that we entered your company information in the form for you.
- Review the form to make sure it is correct.
- If the form is incorrect, download a power of attorney form from your state's department of revenue.
- Check with your state department of revenue if you have questions about what level of access is appropriate for Avalara.
- Select Attach and upload the file downloaded in Step 2.
