Get the info you need to manage notices for Missouri, including submitting a power of attorney and understanding common issues.

Power of Attorney

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

To submit a POA:

  1. Obtain and complete a Missouri 2827 Power of Attorney form
  2. Submit the completed POA form to the Missouri 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 the most common notice issues to resolve for Missouri. See Manage Tax Notices for additional details about resolving notice issues.

Issue Action
Filing frequency changed

Pay close attention to mail received from the Missouri Taxation Division. Send notification of filing frequency changes to us by submitting a case immediately. Edit your scheduled returns to change the filing frequency.

Tax type/form discrepancy

Missouri is stating that the expected returns haven't been filed.

These are the forms and corresponding tax types:

  • MO 53-V (Vendors Use)

  • MO 53-C (Consumers Use)

  • MO 53-1 (Sales)

Review tax permits, business registration, and tax return forms. Match the state tax type to the way your business is registered and the tax return you need to file. If you're unsure, contact the state department of revenue. Tax types are selected when you tell Avalara where you collect tax. Also, make sure the correct return is scheduled.
