About Adobe Acrobat Reader
Forms, brochures and other documents on this site are stored as PDF (Portable Document Format) files. These files are highly compressed (to save on download times) while keeping all of the same formatting as the original document. The PDF is also a truly "cross platform" format, meaning these documents will look and work the same whether you are using a DOS, Windows, Macintosh or Unix systems.
The IRS and most other states have also adopted the PDF format as a publishing standard for online documents and forms. To view and print PDFs, you must have a supported version of Adobe's Acrobat Reader installed. Some forms on this site are designed so you can complete them on-line before printing and mailing them.
To use this feature, you need Reader version 9 or better. This program is available for free download by going directly to Adobe.com
