Couples Who Filed Joint Returns Must Now File Separate Powers of Attorney

Starting Mar 1, a IRS will no longer accept aged versions of Form 2848, Power of Attorney and Declaration of Representative, and will accept usually a chronicle expelled in Oct 2011. The new chronicle of a form requires a father and mother who filed a corner taxation lapse to any record a apart energy of profession on apart Forms 2848 to appropriate a deputy he or she chooses, even if it is a same chairman (Instructions to Form 2848 (rev. Oct 2011)).

Under a many new before chronicle of Form 2848 (rev. Jun 2008), a father and mother who filed a corner lapse and wanted to have a same deputy could record one Form 2848 (Instructions to Form 2848 (rev. Jun 2008)).

Another change in a form is that a deputy contingency yield his or her preparer taxation marker series (PTIN). A new difficulty of representative—registered taxation lapse preparer—has been combined to a form.

In discussions with Benson Goldstein, comparison technical manager, tax, for a AICPA, a IRS has indicated that usually a new chronicle of Form 2848 will be accepted, starting on March, 1. Husbands and wives who already had a energy of profession on record as of that date do not have to record new apart forms.
