Power of Attorney

If your organization will be represented by a third party, whether in person or by correspondence, you must file a power of attorney specifically authorizing the individual to represent your organization. Form 2848, Power of Attorney and Declaration of Representative, may be used for this purpose. If you want the third party to be able to receive information about your case, but not to represent you, you may use Form 8821, Tax Information Authorization, instead of Form 2848.
