Obtaining and Installing Adobe Reader®
What is Adobe Reader and What are PDF Files?
Adobe Reader is free software for viewing and printing Portable Document Format (PDF) files on any computer. PDF is a universal file format that preserves all the fonts, formatting, graphics and color of any document, regardless of the application and platform used to create it. PDF files are compact and can be shared, viewed, navigated and printed exactly as they were created.
How do I get Adobe Reader?
Most modern computers come with Adobe Reader preinstalled. If this is not the case with your computer, you can download Reader from the Adobe website for free. There are several versions available for different operating systems. Reader is a large download and may take a while if you are using a dial-up modem.

Can I Save the Data on the Forms?
Only a limited number of the forms on this site can be filled out online, printed and submitted to us through the U.S. Postal Service. Our website calls these Fill, Print and Go Forms. The ability to save the Fill, Print and Go forms and submit them electronically is currently not available due to limitations and licensing restrictions of Adobe Reader. To save data on a Fill, Print and Go Form, you can download the form to your computer and save the data that you entered on the forms. Always make sure you are using the most current version of the form.
