Minnesota Power of Attorney Forms


Minnesota power of attorney forms are state-specific documents that offer a person a legal means of assigning a person with the right to manage certain matters on their behalf. The forms can be used for tasks ranging in importance; a medical POA, for instance, gives a person to make decisions on how you would like to be taken care of during end-of-life treatment. A tax POA, on the other hand, gives a person the right to manage and file your taxes on your behalf. The principal (person completing the form), should choose a representative (the “agent”) that they personally know and trust, such as a family member, close friend, or practicing attorney.

An individual looking to complete and sign a POA in Minnesota should be up-to-date on the current laws mandating POAs, which can be found in Chapter 523 of the state’s statutes.

Types (6)

Durable Power of Attorney – A POA used when one wants to delegate financial management to an agent. Being durable, the contract does not expire if the principal becomes incapacitated.
