Tax preparation is perhaps one of the most paper intensive event which can often overwhelm you. Firstly the number and types of entries is large, secondly each form has many complex entries to fill.

That's why it is important to become familiar with the document you have to submit. If you do not familiarize yourself then without exception you will lose money.

Its true that some people believe their Tax consultant will do an excellent job, but being totally ignorant about your money makes a consultants job not only difficult but wastes time too.

So let us try and learn a bit about Tax forms and its entries here.


Firstly check out the IRS website. You will find electronic copies of Tax forms here, instructions to fill and methods of submission. Download the form applicable to you.


Read each entry carefully, if you don't understand in first go, doesn't matter move ahead and read next. It may be a good idea to do some practice by filling the form few times.


Since these forms are in PDF format they can not be edited straightaway, you must convert them into editable word first so that you can 'cut and paste' the text. You can convert PDF into word in one of two ways:

a) Use Adobe or any PDF to Word converter

b) Convert online on internet quickly.

a) If you have Adobe installed in your computer, its good, otherwise you will have to buy or download a conversion software ( costs over $400 ) and learn its ins and outs to use properly. Since no software on this planet can guarantee 100% correct conversion all the time, you will have to proof read your converted document to remove conversion errors.

b) On the other hand you can convert PDF into word online from your PC without using any software. Just upload your PDF on a conversion site and download its editable version within minutes.


Search Google with keyword phrase by adding words like 'online' with 'document' and with 'conversion' to make it like a sentence phrase. This way you will find quite a few sites that can convert PDF to word for you online. Many for free while some may charge a small fee.

You are obviously tempted to go to free sites because they are free - but be careful with free sites, if possible avoid them. That's because free sites are often not protected from dangers of virus or malicious software that lurk on internet. Paid sites are however safe.


To convert PDF forms online look out for a paid site. Paid site will not only be safe, you can expect high quality proof reading and technical support too. This way few cents a page may just turn out to be a bargain.

In the end what matters is how well you are familiar with Tax forms and how well you can fill yours, 'to pay or not to pay' is a secondary issue important for safety reasons. But if paying more helps you become familiar with your taxes now then it goes without saying that you pay much less in future.

So its wise to make the right choice now. This way you can maximise your returns in half the time now!
