Fillable 1099-MISC forms?

Discussion in 'Tax' started by JoeSpareBedroom, Feb 6, 2011.

  1. This IRS page claims that with the correct version of Adobe Reader, I should
    be able to fill in certain forms:

    http://www.irs.gov/formspubs/article/0,,id=98121,00.html

    Either they're lying, or the 1099-MISC available on the IRS site is not
    fillable.

    http://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/f1099msc.pdf

    Anyone know where I can get one that actually works? I'm using Adobe Reader
    8.2.5.

    Adobe's help file says this:
    "Noninteractive PDF forms can be printed and filled in by hand. Or, you can
    choose Tools > Typewriter > Typewriter and use the Typewriter tool to type
    information over the blank form fields and then print a copy of the
    completed form."

    Silly help file. The "typewriter" function doesn't exist on my Tools menu.

    Look at the statement you get with this link. They don't want you
    to fill the on line forms, they want you to use their forms, or for
    you to use commercially fillable forms, not available on the internet.
