IRS Requires Power of Attorney for Business Employees to Communicate

By Mary E. Vandenack.

Circular 230 provides details as to dealing with the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) on all matters. One of the issues addressed is who may communicate and correspond with the IRS. If a corporate employee is simply providing and receiving information, then a Form 4764 is sufficient to authorize the employee to communicate with the IRS. If a corporation wants to allow a specific employee to negotiate, advocate, or dispute issues with the IRS, a Form  2848 designating that employee must be filed.
