Power of Attorney

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

To submit a POA:

  1. Obtain and complete a Maine 2848-ME Power of Attorney form
  2. Mail the completed POA form to Maine Revenue Services, PO Box 1060, Augusta, ME 04332
  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.
