South Dakota Revocation of Power of Attorney Form


The South Dakota Revocation of Power of Attorney enables a Principal to lawfully terminate a Power of Attorney. To quote relevant state law on the matter (i.e. § 59-7-2), a Power of Attorney may only be revoked by:

  1. Revocation by the Principal,
  2. Death of the Principal, or
  3. His incapacity to contract.

This form is the means by which the first circumstance (i.e. “revocation by the Principal) can be put into effect. However, it is necessary, as per this law, that all relevant parties are given notice of the revocation in order for it to proceed.
