Note: You must have the “Add/Delete” another representative privilege on the POA Declaration to remove yourself or another representative through MyFTB. If you do not have this privilege, you must fax a written request to the POA Revocation fax line at 916.845.9144.

POA Detail

Note: If the representative being removed is the “Primary” representative, you must designate another representative as the “Primary” first. If there is only one representative listed on the POA Declaration, only the Edit link will display. You must revoke the POA Declaration when there is only one representative listed.  If the Remove link does not display, you do not have the “Add/Delete” privilege.
