User friendly. In past years I've been able to bring up the forms I need from www.irs.gov and fill out the forms, save and print the forms. Same is true for Louisiana Dept of Revenue. Now neither of the websites supports filling out any forms. I was extremely frustrated with this change. PDFfiller has made my life so much easier. Thank you

9 Reasons Why pdfFiller is Better Than Adobe Acrobat and Adobe Acrobat Document Cloud

Online PDF editors are helpful tools enabling some basic text editing, inserting graphic elements, signing and adding images. The advantages of this type of web-based services is that they don't require installing any kind of software into your computer. Typically, they all work the following way:
The user uploads the necessary PDF file at the platform’s website and the document opens in the editor, where the following functionally is normally enabled: adding text, inserting images, e-Signature, highlighting, adding shapes and attaching blank pages. After that, the modified document can be downloaded or saved in the most popular cloud storages - GoogleDrive or Dropbox. More advanced platforms like, PDFescape, also provide annotating tools and more options of the pages layout.
Anyways, pdfFiller is the best alternative of the available online services (for example, Adobe Acrobat, Adobe Acrobat Document Cloud), as it serves as a complete document management platform rather than a monofunctional editing tool.
pdfFiller boasts of such useful features unlike the other services:
No need to upload documents previously saved on your computer, as you can paste the URL to the necessary document, find it in our library of fillable forms, get it from email or, upload it as well.
You can create a new form containing all most common text formats, graphics, images and signature.
Adding customized watermarks.
Spellchecking.
And, what is more important all these actions can be taken on any devices, both desktop and mobile.
You can merge several document into a single fillable document.
Automatically added date.
Inserting fillable fields (for text, numbers, check marks, initials, signature, date, dropdown menu, formula).
Possibility to view the document before printing, downloading or sending it out, when all the edits are finished.
