A third party designee is any person or business with whom you permit the IRS to discuss your Form 2290. A third party designee may be an employee, return preparer, or relative, for example. The IRS can only speak with the people you authorize to be your third-party designee. The authorization of your third-party designees will expire after one year of filing Form 2290.
When you authorize your third-party designee, you give them permission to exchange information about your Form 2290 with the IRS, as well as request and receive written tax return information that is related to your Form 2290. The information includes account transcripts, correspondence, and copies of notices. Your designee will not be authorized to bind you to any additional tax liabilities or to represent you to the IRS.
