Power of Attorney Procedures and Form

Power of Attorney allows an individual to act as the authority for another person in specific instances. Indiana Department of Revenue (DOR) requires a Power of Attorney form (POA-1) for customers to authorize another person to have access to their information.

Taxpayers who authorize a representative to have Power of Attorney on their behalf for state tax matters must have a properly completed POA-1 form, which must be submitted to DOR in one of the following ways:

  • By mail with a hardcopy of the original
  • By fax as a copy of the original

Once DOR has received the properly completed POA-1, a DOR employee can speak with the representative about the specific tax type and period indicated on the POA-1 form. Please note that the POA-1 form does not need to be notarized.

The Indiana Taxpayer Information Management Engine (INTIME) - DOR's new, 24/7, self-service e-portal allows tax preparers to submit an electronic Power of Attorney (or ePOA) to streamline the establishment of a POA relationship as noted in this chart.

INTIME enables businesses and individuals to view account information and correspondence online, register tax accounts, file and pay their taxes online. Through INTIME, tax preparers also have increased access and functionality including:

  • Access to view and manage multiple customers under one login
  • Ability to file returns, make payments, and view file and pay history for clients
  • Ability to view and respond to correspondence for clients

INTIME is accessible at intime.dor.in.gov/eServices. For more information on DOR's once-in-a generation project to modernize our current tax system, visit Project NextDOR
