How To Get Started
Select the appropriate form by clicking on form name from the list above. The form should automatically open and be displayed through Adobe Acrobat Reader 3.0 (or a later version).
To begin; position your cursor (or I beam) in a field at the top of the form; click; and begin entering your information. You may move from field to field by using your TAB key. (Note: If you have no information to enter in a certain field, continue using your TAB key to move to the next field that applies to you.)
There are certain questions on each form that you can only answer by inserting a check mark inside a box. To insert (or delete) a check mark inside a box, hit the SPACE bar one time.
If you accidentally hit the ENTER key you will be automatically returned to the top of the form. You may re-position your cursor by merely clicking on the field you were in prior to hitting the ENTER key and continue entering your information.
Once you have entered all the required information, you may print out a copy of the completed return by clicking on the print icon on the toolbar within the Adobe Acrobat Reader window or by using the File / Print Option also found on the Adobe Acrobat Reader toolbar.
