Some states are now using scannable forms. Because of this, certain forms may not have the lines precisely as they are on the version publicly available on the Web site.
For scannable forms, the IRS and state taxing agencies want all computer-generated forms to be printed in a specified way. Some forms also may contain a bar code or scan band.
The IRS or the appropriate state approves all forms before they are released to be printed from our software.
