You don't need to scan them to PDF, the government has all of the forms as PDF files. Haven't you had occasion yet to visit that site? It changed a little from last year, instead of scrolling down a long list, now you enter the form you want in the line and it brings the possible versions up.

The main site is, of course, www.irs.gov. From there you can go to http://www.irs.gov/app/picklist/list/formsInstructions.html and enter a form number. You'll need Form 8283 for all of the non-cash donations you made this year, for example. When you put your cursor over the parts that you would fill out, you can type in your answers. If you save the file on your computer you can still fill it in (you probably need an up-to-date version of Adobe Reader to use it). It isn't a spread sheet, it won't do math, it will just let you enter text and numbers. But it gives you a very nice looking form of your statement to send in.
