How can I remove the watermark "TAXPAYER COPY ONLY - DO NOT MAIIL THIS FORM"?
If a state return displays a watermark across the top of the form, it is still in development. The form can be printed for the taxpayer's information, but it should not be paper-filed. The watermark will be removed with an update when the form is ready for official use.
The watermark text may say "TAXPAYER COPY ONLY - DO NOT MAIIL THIS FORM" or "Draft Form - CLIENT COPY ONLY - Do not mail this form - DRAFT."
Some states have additional restrictions on forms that have not been approved, see KB 14473 for details.
A similar watermark may display on federal forms; see KB 18346 for details.
