In Massachusetts, there are several forms that may be used for acknowledgments and certificates of authority.

  1. Notary Acknowledgment Form: This form is used by notaries public to acknowledge the execution of a document by a person who appears before them. It includes a space for the notary to enter their name, commission number, and expiration date, as well as a space for the notary to sign and stamp the form.

  2. Certificate of Acknowledgment Form: This form is similar to the notary acknowledgment form, but it is used by individuals who are not notaries public to acknowledge the execution of a document. It includes a space for the individual to enter their name and address, as well as a space for them to sign and date the form.

  3. Certificate of Authority Form: This form is used by businesses or organizations to appoint an individual or group of individuals as their agent or representative for a specific purpose, such as signing contracts or conducting business on their behalf. It includes a space for the business or organization to enter its name and address, as well as a space for the individual or individuals being appointed as agents to sign and date the form. These forms are typically used in legal or official contexts, such as when a document needs to be authenticated or when a business or organization is appointing an agent to act on their behalf. They are available from the issuing agency or can be downloaded from the internet.
