The IRS.gov fillable forms I used and saved last week are now blank, however, I used this same laptop in June to complete and successfully save tax forms - the June documents open correctly and with the data today. But the forms I worked on for hours yesterday and saved in the same manner and renamed in the way and saved to my same file on the hard drive are now blank! Why is this happening? I went back and checked IRS form, file, properties, security and it reports data can be saved in the forms.. so what change was made to prevent completed documents from being correctly saved.
We apologize for not being able to reply to your query on time.
As the scenario explained above, form's properties allows to save and fill the data in it. So, where exactly this form has been saved? Have you downloaded or saved it locally in your computer or filled in online?
You might have saved the filled in form to a different location by a different name. If you are still experiencing the same problem, then it would be easier for us to understand if we look into the form.
I am having the same problem with the IRS fillable forms. The forms that I renamed and saved back in November 2020 are now blank. Further, other forms that I started and renamed and saved last week are now blank as well. These forms were save as pdf on both my laptop and my OneDrive. This is a serious issue for me. It appears that I may have to go back to keeping pencil copies.
