Printed tax forms down, printed checks up. Maybe the supply-siders are right . . .

Not to quibble, Frank, but you said "There's lots of stuff happening out there. It's an interesting marketplace as we move into the digital era."

The IRS was one of the pioneers transitioning from distributing digital files to distributing paper. Acrobat 1.0 was originally released on 15 June 1993 - This was not available in single copies and was not initially free, with Acrobat Reader originally priced at $50 per user.

After a while, the IRS purchased a right to distribute Reader 1.0, effectively making it seem free to those who obtained it that way.

That was almost 20 years ago - who says change happens fast.
