Memory Problems When Printing:

Due to the file size of some of the forms and booklets, you may experience problems when printing these. If you have trouble, please try printing a few pages at a time. Start with five pages and work downward as is necessary.


Important: These forms must be printed using a high quality printer. The forms must precisely match the printed forms available from the Department of Revenue. Laser, ink-jet and bubble-jet printers, in good working condition, should give acceptable quality printouts. Some high-resolution dot-matrix printers may give acceptable printouts. However, Thermal printers and low-resolution dot-matrix printers do not produce acceptable quality forms.
