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

Power of Attorney

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

To submit a POA:

  1. Obtain and complete a North Carolina Gen-58 Power of Attorney form
  2. Submit the completed POA form to the North Carolina 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 North Carolina. See Manage Tax Notices for additional details about resolving notice issues.

Issue Action

Prepayments are either missing or you're making prepayments when you aren't registered to make them. You must be aware of your prepayment requirements. 

Filing frequency changed

North Carolina sends out frequency changes by mail. Pay close attention to mail received from the Department of Revenue. Send notification of filing frequency changes to us by submitting a case immediately. Edit your scheduled returns to change the filing frequency.
