In situations like this, you can add comments to PDF documents online. In the past, you probably had to print the form and write your comments on the margins of the paper copy. Depending on your handwriting, the form might not have been very tidy and pleasant to look at. Now there is a far easier way to comment PDFs online. pdfFiller's simple but powerful document editor allows you to add text boxes with comments and remove them when they are no longer needed.

What our customers say about pdfFiller
See for yourself by reading reviews on the most popular resources:
ITS PRETTY GREAT, THERE ARE A FEW FEATURES I WOULD LIKE, INCLUDING AN ONLINE MANUAL AND THE ABILITY TO MOVE TEXT BOXES ONCE THEY ARE FILLED OUT. THERE COULD ALSO BE AN ABILITY TO PAY PER FORM AS I PROBABLY WON'T BE FILLING OUT PDFS FREQUENTLY ENOUGH TO JUSTIFY MONTHLY PAYMENTS.
This is so much better than Intuit's service and way cheaper!
