It is not mandatory for a tax preparer to file Form 2848 power of attorney filed with a business. If you haven't filed a Form 2848 for your client, you can file your tax returns using Form 8453-EX.
If you file Form 2848 for a client, you will have the power of attorney to file returns on behalf of your client any number of times before your Form 2848 expires. If you do not have a Form 2848 for a client, you must complete Form 8453-EX with that client every time you file a return for them.
Make sure to choose "No" as your Power of Attorney while entering business details, if you haven't filed Form 2848 with that business.
