Once you’ve selected the tax forms you want to produce, to print from Chrome click “File”, “Print” or type Ctrl + P or Command + P in macOS.

Look for “More Settings” on the Chrome print menu.

Make sure “Scale” is set to “Custom”. A little box will show the scale percentage—make sure this is set to 100.

Be certain to uncheck the Two-Sided box (circled).

Click “Print”.

Tweaking your print alignment

If you find your alignment is slightly off, you can make small adjustments in alignment through Tax Forms Helper’s print menu.

If you glance just above the “Print onto Pre-Printed IRS Form”, you’ll see the powerhouse feature that lets you modify your data alignment.

Adjust alignment

You can move your data right, left, up or down using the adjustment indicators on the Print Menu.

Return to the Adams Tax Forms Helper print menu to make alignment tweaks.

Simply enter a number in the hundredths box and select right/left or up/down from the dropdown options to adjust.

You can return to adjust the alignment as needed after each test run until you’re satisfied with your results.

One more alternative: printing from Adobe Acrobat Reader

If you’re still having trouble with alignment, you can also try printing from a pdf in Acrobat Reader. Some users have great success with this technique after all else has failed.
