Missouri power of attorney forms are legal documents used for assigning power to an individual, who will use the received power to accomplish tasks and/or make decisions on behalf of another person (the “principal”). Powers can range from the right to sign a document, sell a property, file taxes, to making end-of-life healthcare decisions. Whatever powers the principal decides to delegate, their agent should be someone they can personally trust to make the right decisions.
