    Hi! I'm trying to fill in forms at irs.gov. I can fill them out just fine, but when I go to print, it prints a blank form without any of the info that I have filled in. I filled out one of the forms at work and it printed just fine. Why can't I get this to work at home. I can't do our tax returns at work. Please help me. Need to get our returns done.

    Also, there are several sites at irs.gov where you can provide your information and they will prepare your return. How secure is this?
    I have prepared our returns and know which forms to use etc., but it would be nice to have it prepared by one of these services to double check my calculations. I am just a little leary of putting this information out there. Am I being paranoid?

    Thanks for your help at this stressful time of year.

    When the print diologue box appears try selecting "Print document and markups" from the drop down menu located under the section labeled "Comments and Forms"

    Thanks for your quick reply, but that didn't work either. I am beside myself.

    What version of Adobe are you using? Have you tried to reinstall the program or update to a newer version of Adobe if you don't have version 8 already?

    Have these forms been downloaded and saved to your PC or are you simply opening them directly from the website and trying to print them after filling them in?

    Filled them in on the website. When it printed the blank form without the info I filled in, I tried saving the form to my computer. It saved all filled in and I tried printing it from the file I saved it to. Again printed a blank form without my information. As I said, at work it printed the completed form. What makes this even more of a dilema, is that I just went to another site from my home computer and filled in a Pdf. form and it has printed just fine. Just don't understand what I am doing wrong.

    Still trying to fill in the forms for our tax returns and print them, and still can't get them to print with the filled in information. Really getting frustrated. This should be so simple.

    Here's a workaround:
    If you print a range of pages instead of 'all pages' it prints filled in information correctly.
