If you appoint an entity as your representative, then any individual within that entity is authorized to act on your behalf. For example, if you appoint the XYZ Law Firm as your representative, any attorney or paralegal from that firm is authorized to act on your behalf. The “Contact Name” is only to ensure that information sent to the entity is directed to the individual overseeing your representation. The contact name is NOT your sole authorized representative. To appoint an entity, write in the Name and Address box (for example): XYZ Law Firm 1234 Street City, State, ZIP Code Appointing an individual as your representative. If you appoint a specific individual as your representative, then only that individual is authorized to act on your behalf. Treasury will only discuss with or disclose information to that individual.

If you check box 5 in Part 4, you are granting your representative general authority to act on your behalf regarding any tax return and any debt. However, granting your representative general authority does not give the representative the right to receive future copies of letters and notices unless Part 5 is also completed. Part 5: Requesting copies of letters and notices with respect to a tax dispute. NOTE: This part does not apply to City Income Tax. If you complete Part 5, you must identify on the line in Part 5 a single tax matter that is in dispute. The dispute may cover more than one tax period or year. If you have more than one dispute with Treasury and want your representative to receive copies of future notices and letters with respect to those additional disputes, you must fill out a separate form for each dispute. Part 5 does not give a representative authority to act on your behalf. You must give your representative authority to act on your behalf by checking one or more boxes in Part 4 if you want your representative to do more than just receive future notices and letters. Only one representative can be authorized to receive future letters and notices regarding a specific tax dispute under Part 5.
