About PDF forms and publications

General information

The Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) produces forms and publications in Portable Document Format (PDF), which are fillable and savable for your convenience.

Filling and saving PDF forms

To be able to fill in and save a PDF form, download and then open the form using the free Adobe Reader:

  1. Save the PDF fillable/savable form in a folder that you will easily find on your computer.
  2. Launch Adobe Reader.
  3. Browse to the folder where you saved the file, and open it from within Adobe Reader. You can now fill and save your PDF form.

Note: CRA fillable/savable PDF forms have been tested for compatibility with Adobe Reader 9 and higher and may not be fully supported in other PDF viewers and on some mobile devices.

Printing PDF forms

Before you print, set the page size in the Adobe Reader print properties to legal or letter based on the size of the document.

Need a signature? If a signature is required, completed forms must be printed and signed by hand.

If you experience problems printing a PDF:

  1. Use the latest printer driver: Printer manufactures regularly release updated printer drivers to improve compatibility with newer software. Make sure you have the latest version.
  2. Print to a different printer: If you have a second printer connected to your computer, try printing the file to it.
  3. Use the "Print as image" option: Adobe Reader gives you the option to print the PDF form as an image and this can resolve some printing issues. In Adobe Reader, this setting is found in the “Advanced” settings of the “Print” dialog box.

'Advance Print Setup' dialog box with 'Print As Image' selected

Remember: You are responsible for the completeness and accuracy of any information submitted on a form. Be sure to double-check all data entered
