See detailed instructions at the bottom of this page. If you need to leave the site before you finish your statement, click “SAVE AND SUBMIT LATER” at the bottom of the form. Otherwise, you will have to start over. The site will “time out” after 10 minutes of inactivity. If you have not saved your work, you will have to start over.
