Saving, Filling-in, and Printing PDF Files
We use Adobe Acrobat PDF files as a means to electronically provide forms & publications. You will need to have the Adobe Reader software installed to access them (available FREE from the Adobe Reader download page on Adobe's Web site). We recommend using the most recent version of Adobe Reader.
When saving or printing a file, be sure to use the functionality of Adobe Reader rather than your web browser.
All of our PDF files are tested prior to posting on IRS.gov. If you have problems with a file, such as PDF pages that don't appear in the browser window, please review the troubleshooting information in Adobe's support knowledgebase.
IRS fill-in PDF forms use some of the features provided with Adobe Acrobat software, such as the ability to save the data you input (document rights). Currently, there is no computation, validation or verification of the information you enter and you are still responsible for entering all required information.
We accept forms that are consistent with the official printed versions and do not have an adverse impact on our processing. This policy includes forms printed from IRS.gov and output on high-quality devices such as laser or ink-jet printers, unless otherwise specified on the form itself. Forms that must be order from the IRS are labeled "for information only" and can be ordered online.
