To get durable power of attorney, complete this form and sign in front of a notary public.
- Medical – Use to outline your requests for a person to take care of your health care needs if you cannot do so for yourself. You will be able to put forward exactly what rights you would like your agent to have. Once it has been signed and notarized, the form is legally in effect.
- State Tax Filing (2848) – Use to have someone else handle your tax filing on your behalf. Typically, a Certified Public Accountant (CPA) will attach this to your filing when it is ready to be submitted to the Department of Revenue.
- Vehicle – Use to grant someone else the right to make any type of title decision with a vehicle you own. This means that the person you select may sell, register, or receive Title for it. Once it has been signed by you the form becomes legal for use.
- Revocation – Allows a person that has a power of attorney form in existence to cancel the document. Make sure to issue the completed revocation to any and all institutions that need to be informed of the change so that the agent may no longer act in your presence.
