If you ever need a hard copy of your tax forms on plain paper for you, your employees or recipients, you can easily print plain paper copies in Adams® Tax Forms Helper® Online. Here’s how.

To print plain paper tax forms, select the appropriate tab to choose your form type (1099-MISC, 1099-NEC, 1098, etc.). Choose “Select All” or check or uncheck boxes to choose your payer/recipients.

Click the blue “Print Selected” button below the records table to open the Adams Tax print menu.

Tell Tax Forms Helper which copy to print

Look for the “Select Format” drop-down. This menu will tell Tax Forms Helper Online which copies of your form you’d like to produce (copy A, copy 2, copy C and so on).

Decide if you’d like to mask FIDs

Clicking this checkbox will mask any Federal ID numbers.

Print onto blank paper

To print onto blank paper, select “Print with Form onto Blank Paper”. You’ll see a preview of your form with your data and the form grid.

Tip: Official IRS copies must be scannable, meaning they’re printed with a special red ink that can be read by Optical Character Recognition (OCR) technology.

If you’re printing red ink 1096 or W-2, Adams Tax Forms Helper Online will only produce a watermarked printout of these forms that are for informational purposes only and not suitable for filing. Learn more.
