Power of Attorney and Declaration of Representative (GEN-58)

Form GEN-58 grants authority to an individual to represent a taxpayer before the Department of Revenue and to receive and inspect confidential tax information, which may include federal tax information. This power of attorney authorizes the individual(s) named to perform any and all acts you can perform. This includes acts such as signing consents extending the time to assess tax and executing waivers agreeing to a tax adjustment. However, authorizing someone as your power of attorney does not relieve you of your tax obligations.

Filing the Power of Attorney

File Form GEN-58 with the applicable office (main or taxpayer service center). The applicable office is the office from which you request information or before which a matter, such as an audit, is pending. The Department of Revenue will not be able to process your request if the following information is not provided:

  • Name
  • Social Security Number(s) and/or Fed Employer ID Number
  • Representative’s Name
  • Type of Tax
  • Year(s) or Period(s)
  • Date
  • Signature
