Sometimes you have to send in a paper taxform, even it it has been
created online (pdf or whatever). Does anyone have troubles with
inability to print the junk they put on the bitter edges? I see it
perfectly well in a print preview screen, but whatever pc or printer I
try seems to omit bits of the bottom and side.
With the bureaucratic convention of putting id numbers on extreme
edges, how do I grapple with this? I shrink the zoom factor and
sometimes flip the orientation to grapple with any asymmetry. But is
this a no-no?... I see my state tax forms forbidding sending in form
photocopies because they say it alters the magnification.
For some federal forms the instructions don't mention that, but say
you must show all printed portions and lines. So could I assume I can
shrink it by 3 or 4%? A 96% image noticably skews the alignments, so I
do a 97% and a flip. Is this something I should be worrying about?
