Note: If you do not wish to give your agent all of the powers listed in Section 2 of the Power of Attorney form, you can limit which powers you grant by crossing out any undesired provisions AND putting your initials on the line in front of it. Any power (A-O) that is not crossed out and initialed will be granted to your agent.
You can find more detailed information about what powers each provision grants by asking an attorney or reading Alaska Statute Section 13.26.344.
