Substitute Tax Forms Approval Process and Information

A substitute tax form is a computer-generated form for filing in lieu of official DC tax forms. Reference the "Substitute Forms Guidelines" publication for the appropriate generation, use and approval of substitute forms.

Substitute tax form grids are available to assist software developers and printers in the accurate generation of substitute tax forms. These grids show the exact design and location of the required elements on the official forms. The substitute tax form grids are for computer-generated/printed, black-and-white versions of pages in the official form that contain drop-out ink. If there are pages in the official version that are black-and-white, continue those in the same format.


Substitute Tax Form Grids

Questions and comments concerning these grids should be addressed to the Office of Tax and Revenue's System and Forms Division at (202) 442-6262 or (202) 442-6919.
