Dear Customer,

This website link is to a 2016, most up to date, form 3115 line by line with sample information, educational, professional seminar. It belongs to the California Society of Enrolled Agents' 2016 Super Seminar. I don't have copy right. Therefore, I cannot download and send you a copy.

I don't think the law preventing me from sharing the information with you. This is a good, informative source for your need.
