Print, Display & Misc. Problems

 

Use the “Print Return” button, once you've completed your return but before you transmit it.

Print Issues

When you do not use a recommended operating system or browser, you may experience one or more of these problems:

  1. No forms will print
  2. Information you entered is missing from the printed form
  3. The form does not display correctly on your computer

Switching to a recommended browser and /or operating system will generally resolve issues 1, 2 and 3 (above). Make sure you adhere to the recommended browser settings.

  1. Some of your forms won't print - This may be a browser pop up blocker issue or a sign that the missing form(s) are Incomplete or Not supposed to print with the return. Some forms that will not print with the return are:
  • Form W-2
  • Form 1099-R
  • 1040-ES

Review the User’s Guide and the Line-by-Line instructions page for assistance with completing forms and printing.

Display Issues

When the form does not display correctly or the information you enter “disappears” after you save or move to another form, you are likely not in compliance with the Computer Requirements. If compliance is not the cause, the Computer Requirements page also contains steps you can take to resolve the problem.
