The IRS will not accept a Partnership return that has a Power of Attorney attached if they do not have the Power of Attorney file. In order to file electronically, remove the POA from the electronic return prior to transmission. If the partnership is required to file a return, not removing the POA will not relieve the partnership of it's filing requirement.
The POA must be submitted on paper to the IRS Center where the taxpayer would normally file a paper return. The POA must be submitted at least six weeks prior to transmitting a return that includes the Power of Attorney. When the six weeks have passed, the tax return can be submitted electronically.
