Electronic Images (PDF Image Versions)
These forms are being made available as Adobe Acrobat Portable Document
Format (PDF) files so that they can be printed and then used in the same
manner as any traditional paper form. They can be viewed and printed with
Adobe Acrobat software, including the free Acrobat
Reader. This software is available for use with several different
computer operating systems, including Windows 3.1, 95, 98, and NT, OS/2,
Macintosh, and several Unix versions.
Screen Fillable Forms (PDF Fillable Versions)
We are also making some of our forms available as screen-fillable Adobe
Acrobat PDF Forms. These are similar to the PDF form images described
above, except that they may be completed on the screen before being printed.
In order to complete these forms on the screen, you must have Adobe
Acrobat or Adobe Acrobat Reader version 5.0 or above.
If you have the Acrobat software configured as a web
browser plug-in application you can fill-out and print the form within
your web browser. If you are using the free Acrobat Reader software,
however, you cannot save the form with the fill-in data for use at a later
time. You will need to use the purchased version of Adobe Acrobat in order
to do this. The free reader software will, however, allow you
to save the blank form itself for use at a later time if you are using
the filler software as a web browser plug-in application.
