Hello,

 

  I have a tax document that I user password protected.  DOH!  I forgot the password....  Is there a way to print or view the document, workaround?  Does Adobe provide a service?

As far as I know, Adobe does not have any program that will break the protection on any document

I do not necessarily need to open the document but if I could just print it out and manually fill in the information that would suffice.

Once a password is set all Adobe software respects it. Adobe did not provide any "master key" to let you (or someone who got hold of your documents) unlock it anyway.
