I am finding that the Durable power of attorney that I hold for my dad is totally useless. I am trying to file dad's taxes by October 15th. I need one more 1099 and when I call the establishment, just to get the number off of it for taxes, I am told that they can not talk to me. I don't know what else to do. My dad has a speech impediment so if I put him on the phone, they are sometimes unable to understand him!
I also find that even if I am just trying to figure out if a bill is paid, no one will talk to me. What good is a power of attorney and what should I do?
