More Information for Forms & Publications
Here's the place to provide us feedback on the content of the products we give you to help you comply with tax law.
The IRS uses Adobe Acrobat PDF files as a means to distribute publications and other information. PDF files are provided for all IRS published products.
Explanations of Portable Document Format (PDF), Standard Generalized Markup Language (SGML), HyperText Markup Language (HTML), Extensible Markup Language (XML), Text-Only (.txt) and Braille (.brf) files are provided.
IRS fill-in PDF forms use some of the features provided with Adobe Acrobat products. Currently, there is no computation, validation or verification of the information you enter and you are still responsible for entering all required information (instructions may require some information to be handwritten on the form).
Some forms provided as electronic files on IRS.gov are for "information only" and should not be reproduced on personal computer printers and filed with the IRS. The printed, paper versions of these forms are developed as "machine readable" products. As such, they must be produced using special paper, special inks, and within precise specifications.
TFOP provides taxpayers with access to tax forms and related products through partnerships that include some libraries, post offices, government agencies, military installations, and other community outlets.
The International Program provides federal tax forms and publications to United States embassies, consulates, and various military legal assistance offices worldwide. Globally, approximately 88 locations provide the necessary forms, instructions and publications for U.S. citizens abroad to file their federal tax return.
