If you want a friend, family member or other person to discuss your return with the Tax Commission, enter their name and phone number in the Third Party Designee area (page 2 of your return). Also, enter a number (up to 5 digits) as a personal identification number (PIN). If you want the paid preparer who signed your return as the Third Party Designee, enter “Preparer” in the designee’s name area.
If you fill in the Third Party Designee area, you (and your spouse if filing a joint return) authorize the Tax Commission to call the designee with questions that may arise while processing your return. You also authorize the designee to:
- give the Tax Commission any missing information from your return,
- call the Tax Commission for information about the processing of your return or the status of your refund or payment(s),
- receive copies of notices or transcripts related to your return, upon request, and
- respond to certain Tax Commission notices about math errors, offsets and return preparation.
You are not authorizing the designee to receive any refund, bind you to anything (including any additional tax liability), or otherwise represent you before the Tax Commission. The authorization automatically ends on the due date for filing your next year’s tax return (without regard to extensions). This due date is April 15 in most years for most people.
If you want to change the designee’s authorization, complete and submit TC-737, Power of Attorney and Declaration of Representative. If you want to revoke the authorization before it ends, submit your request in writing to:
