Power of Attorney

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

To submit a POA:

  1. Obtain and complete a Virginia PAR 101 Power of Attorney form
  2. Fax the completed POA form to the Virginia Department of Revenue at 804-254-6111. Processing takes about 2 weeks.
  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.
