When your return/form appears to not be printing full size, this may be due to Windows display settings or Adobe Reader settings.
First try this:
- Close Adobe Reader and the TaxAct program.
- Right-click on the TaxAct program icon (desktop shortcut).
- Click Properties.
- Click Compatibility..
- In the Settings area check the box "Disable display scaling on high DPI settings." On Windows 10, the setting may say: "Override high DPI scaling behavior. Scaling performed by:" -- check this box and then on the dropdown menu below, first try the option System.
- Apply the changes and close the Properties dialog window.
You can also check the display settings for Windows 7 and 8 and change them in general for your computer, or try this if you are using the online version of TaxAct:
- Right-click on an empty space on the desktop.
- On the context menu select "Screen resolution."
- Click the text link Make text and other items larger or smaller.
- In the settings under Make it easier to read what's on your screen, select an option other than "Larger - 150%."
If you make this change, you will need to reboot your computer.
If the above does not work, or you are using TaxAct Online, check Adobe Reader settings:
- With Adobe Reader open, select any print command. On the print dialog box that opens, check the following:
- Under the Page Size & Handling settings, check:
- Size: "either Fit or scale to 100%"
- Poster: "no option selected"
- Multiple: "no option selected"
- Booklet: "no option selected"
