Form 1099 Form W-2



Question:  I already have Adobe Acrobat Reader installed on my computer to download tax forms and instructions from the IRS, and I suspect everyone else in the tax business does as well.   Why are you offering an Adobe Reader download here, and why are sending me an additional copy on the installation diskette/CD-ROM?


Answer:  Some users still have early versions of Adobe Acrobat reader -- in some cases as early as version 1.0!  While they may still work for some applications, for best results Adobe Acrobat Reader version 4.05 or later should be used to view or print this user manual.  We noted, for example, that the clarity of the diagrams and screen pictures in this manual was far better using the 4.05 version instead of the older 3.0 version.  

Also, some State tax departments began requiring version 4.0 or later to download their forms for tax year 2000.  If you have not reported in those states in the intervening years, you could still be using version 3.0.

We supply the file on the installation CD just to permit our customers to avoid even the minor inconvenience of having to download the latest Adobe Reader from the Internet.  And we offer it here just in case this is a convenient time and you want to download it immediately.  Either way, it's free.

Downlaod free Adobe Acrobat reader program if you would like to download the most current version of the FREE Adobe Acrobat Reader right now.  Depending on the operating system you are running, this could be as new as version 8.0.1.  If you are running an older version of Acrobat Reader and your computer is running Windows XP, for example, you will see real improvements if you upgrade.
