To submit a POA:

  1. Obtain and complete a State of Arkansas Department of Finance and Administration Power of Attorney
  2. Mail the completed POA form to the Arkansas office handling your tax matter
  3. Send the completed POA form and notice to us by submitting a case. Processing takes about 6 - 8 weeks.

After we have a POA on file, you don't have to submit another one unless something has changed.

Common Issues

These are the most common notice issues to resolve for Arkansas. See Manage Tax Notices for additional details about resolving notice issues.

Issue Action

Sales tax vs vendors use tax reporting

A notice may be generated if sales are reported in a section that doesn't match your current registration. If the incorrect tax type is filed, a notice is issued for a delinquent return or asking you to amend the return. If you submit an amended return to Arkansas, you must include a letter explaining the amendment.

Send notification of filing frequency changes to us by submitting a case immediately. Edit your scheduled returns to change the filing frequency.
