Instructions for Form M-5008-R
Use this form to designate a representative(s) and grant the representative(s) the authority to obligate, bind, and/or appear
on your behalf before the New Jersey Division of Taxation. Section 3 of the form allows you to list which tax matters your
representative is authorized to handle on your behalf.
You may authorize the representative(s) to receive your confidential tax information. Unless otherwise indicated, the
representative(s) may also perform any and all acts that you can perform regarding your taxes. This includes consenting to
extend the time to assess tax or agreeing to a tax adjustment. Representatives may not sign returns or delegate authority
unless specifically authorized to do so on this form.
Form M-5008-R Is not Required:
When an individual appears with you or with a representative who is authorized to act on your behalf. For example, this
form is not required if a representative appears on behalf of a corporate taxpayer with an authorized corporate officer;
If a trustee, receiver, or attorney has been appointed by a court that has jurisdiction over a debtor;
If an individual merely furnishes tax information or prepares a report or return for you;
When a fiduciary stands in the position of, and acts as, the taxpayer. However, if a fiduciary wishes to authorize an
individual to represent or act on behalf of the taxpayer, the fiduciary must sign and file Form M-5008-R.
Limitations
Appointing a representative does not relieve you of tax responsibilities or obligations. This
form allows another person to
represent you in most matters concerning tax administration, tax investigations, examinations/audits, and other meetings
with the Division. Because you remain responsible for your tax obligations, a representative’s authority does not extend to
some aspects of the collection process. Examples of the collection process are: judgments, levies, liens, and seizures. In these
instances, we may require telephone communication, direct contact, and/or interaction with the taxpayer.
Who Can Execute the Appointment of Taxpayer Representative?
An individual, if the request pertains to a personal Income or individual Use Tax return filed by that individual (or by an
individual and his or her spouse/CU partner if the request pertains to a joint Income Tax return and joint representation
is requested). If joint representation is not requested, each taxpayer must file his or her own form.
If the taxpayer is a limited liability company (LLC), a manager of the LLC. If there is no manager, a member of the LLC
authorized to act on tax matters on behalf of the entity.
A sole proprietor.
A general partner of a partnership or limited partnership.
The administrator or executor of an estate.
The trustee of a trust.
If the taxpayer is a corporation, a principal officer or corporate officer who is authorized to act on tax matters and has
legal authority to reach agreements on behalf of the corporation; any person who is designated by the board of directors
or other governing body of the corporation; any officer or employee of the corporation upon written request signed by
a principal officer of the corporation and attested by the secretary or other officer of the corporation; or any other
person who is authorized to receive or inspect the corporation’s return or return information under I.R.C. §6103(e)(1)(D).
Tax Matters
You may enter more than one tax type and indicate the tax year(s) and/or tax period(s) applicable in Section 3. If you designate
a specific tax but no tax year or period, the M-5008-R will apply to all tax years and periods. If you designate a specific tax
year or period but not a specific tax type, this form will apply to all tax types for the designated tax year or period. If you do
not designate either a tax type or a tax period, this form will apply to all taxes and all periods.

You may not partially revoke a previously filed Form M-5008-R. If a previously filed Form M-5008-R or Power of Attorney
