Power of Attorney

The District of Columbia requires a Power of Attorney (POA) for Avalara to resolve notices for you. 

To submit a POA:

  1. Obtain and complete a District of Columbia D-2848 Power of Attorney form
  2. Mail the completed POA form to the DC Office of Tax and Revenue, Customer Service Administration, PO Box 470, Washington, DC 20044-0470
  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
