Form 8821 is the Tax Information Authorization form. This form enables the filer to give permission to view their confidential tax information to an individual, corporation, organization, firm, or partnership. The same as it can allow someone else to view the tax information, Form 8821 can also be used for lifting the prior tax information authorization.
Difference between Form 8821 and 2848
Form 8821 works differently than another similar tax form, 2848. While Form 8821 can only authorize viewing tax information, Form 2848– Power of Attorney and Declaration of Representative allows an individual to represent the filer before the Internal Revenue Service. If the filer filled out a Form 2848 to represent them before the IRS, there is no need for filing Form 8821. The only purpose of the 8821 is to allow the individual to receive tax information.
