Missouri Power of Attorney Forms

Missouri Power of Attorney Forms permit individuals to have third party representation by authorizing agents to act on their behalf. There are three (3) different types of contracts for assigning a financial agent: the durable, general, and limited power of attorney forms. The tax and motor vehicle forms are usually used for a single transaction involving tax filing or a vehicle sale, respectively. The durable power attorney forms allow the person being represented (the principal) to appoint a representative to make financial or medical decisions for them if they become incapacitated. There is no state statute that requires witnesses when executing the document but it is usually required to have a notary public acknowledge and stamp the completed and signed form.
