When calling the toll-free line or business hot line, you can submit a completed and signed IL-2848 to us by fax (217 782-4217) or as an attachment to email at REV.poa@illinois.gov.  (Note:  Please be aware that sending information via email is not secure.)  Allow 3 business days for us to receive and post the power of attorney to your client’s account before calling one of the phone numbers listed above for assistance.

In addition, you should have a copy of your client’s return with you as you will be asked to verify certain information contained on the return.
