If a representative submits an authorization request, you must confirm or deny it within 10 business days in My Business Account or the request will be cancelled. If you still want to authorize a representative after this time period, you must ask your representative to submit a new request.
To confirm or deny an authorization request from your representative, complete the following steps:
Step 1: Sign in to My Business Account
Step 2: From the toolbar at the top of the page, select Profile
Step 3: In the Authorized representatives section, select Manage authorized representatives
Step 4: Select Confirm pending authorizations
Step 5: Select the pending request
Step 6: Select Confirm or Deny to finalize the request
Note: Business owners or directors can designate a delegated authority within their organization, such as a financial officer, to deal with tax matters on their behalf. To do this, the owner or director needs to sign in to My Business Account at least once to authorize this person as a level 3 delegated authority. This level 3 representative will then be able to confirm or deny new authorization requests for other representatives. To learn more about the levels of authorization, go to Level of access you can give.
