My software doesn’t generate forms with a
bar code. What should I do?
If you are
using a tax software package that produces facsimiles of our forms and the
generated forms do not contain the bar code, please contact your software
company and advise them of this change. Many software companies have already
submitted approved bar coded forms and updated packages may be available for the
2nd quarter 2006 filing. Below are the specifications necessary to
create approved bar code forms:
