NEW REPORTING FOR SPECIFIED FOREIGN FINANCIAL ASSETS
PROPOSED TANGIBLE PROPERTY REPAIR REGULATIONS

COUPLES FILING JOINT RETURNS MUST NOW FILE SEPARATE POAs

Starting March 1, 2012, the IRS will no longer accept old versions of Form 2848, Power of Attorney (POA) and Declaration of Representative, and will accept only the version released in October 2011. The revised form requires a husband and wife who filed a joint tax return to each file a separate POA on separate Forms 2848 to designate the representative he or she chooses, even if it is the same person.
