Traditional vs. Fill-In Forms

Two different types of tax forms are available: the traditional form and a "fill-in" form.

Traditional: To complete the traditional form, you must first print the form and then write or type the required information on the form.

Fill-In: Fill-in forms are completed by use of the computer. Fill-in forms that are the size of a full-page form are completed by downloading the form to your computer, entering the required information, and then printing the completed form. Fill-in forms that are the size of a coupon are completed by entering the required information on an entry screen. After clicking the "Next" button, this information is transferred to the form along with a scan line, which is located in the bottom left hand corner. This scan line allows the Department to efficiently process your return.
