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

Power of Attorney

Pennsylvania requires a Power of Attorney (POA) to appeal penalty assessments and resolve notices for you.

To submit a POA:

  1. Obtain and complete a Pennsylvania REV-677 Power of Attorney form
  2. Fax the completed POA form to the Pennsylvania Department of Revenue at (717) 787-7270
  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 Pennsylvania. See Manage Tax Notices for additional details about resolving notice issues.
