Power of Attorney

Iowa requires a Power of Attorney (POA) for Avalara to resolve notices for you. 

To submit a POA:

  1. Obtain and complete an Iowa IA 2848 Power of Attorney form
  2. Submit the completed POA form to the Iowa Department of Revenue
  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 some common notice issues to resolve for Iowa. See Manage Tax Notices for additional details about resolving notice issues.
