The New Jersey Tax Power of Attorney Form (also known as Form M-5008-R) is a document that a Taxpayer needs to officially appoint a Designee liable for examining the books, records, vouchers, accounts of the Principal, along with all the tax-related matters. The form thoroughly describes what kind of powers the Agent is granted. Suppose the Principal does not wish to share his or her confidential information with the Agent or grant the Representative the right to sign returns or delegate the authority. In that case, e these details must be specified in the document. Providing no additional terms and conditions conveys all tax-related rights and responsibilities without any limit to the Attorney-in-Fact.

According to Section 54:50-2.1 of the state law, the Attorney-in-Fact should possess written authorization to act on the Taxpayer’s behalf when communicating with the Division, unless:
By creating a New Jersey Tax Power of Attorney form, you are revoking all previously executed M-5008-R forms (and thus all of the previously designated representatives). However, if you do not wish to revoke the Agent(s) you have chosen before, it is possible to indicate the particular Representatives in a new paper.
If the form is being created by an individual acting as a corporate member, the president, vice-president, treasurer, or assistant treasurer should sign the form.
