The reason that you can save the formfill infomation on the irs pdf is 
because they have got a  licence form adobe to produce pdf's where the 
users can save the form infomtion. Basicaly, the ability to allow 
people to save their form data is not documented in the pdf spec, so 
only adobe can produce pdf's able to form fill
(as far as I have heard, at any rate)
