Make more forms PDF fillable and electronically deliverable

I think the gov't needs to make more of its forms PDF fillable and available to send in via email. I am shocked every time I go to fill in a form, either for business or personal reasons and find that I need to print it out and snail mail or fax it in. Faxing forms is old and becoming obsolete. In addition, paper is wasted by printing out numerous copies every time you mess up filling in the forms by hand. PDF fillable and electronically deliverable forms are the way to go. It saves time, money and paper and also prevents mistakes from reading sloppy handwriting.
