Texas Revocation of Power of Attorney Form

The Texas Revocation of Power of Attorney is a two (2) page legal document that records a principal’s official decision to revoke an active power of attorney that was formed in the state of Texas. The form can be used for any type of POA, both durable and non-durable. It is integral that the principal properly informs their agent of the revocation after completing the form. This can be done by mailing the form, giving it to them in-person, or sending it digitally.

In accordance with Texas’ “good faith laws” regarding POA revocations (§ 751.054), if the agent does not have knowledge of the revocation and acts under good faith, the agent will not be held at fault.
