Oh, I get it - idea to work to final forms, have a staff gopher
do the copies/coloring, etc. I wouldn't have thought of charging
more, because all this past year as I have been doing this very
thing, I have been charging the $10 per item and using the 
$2 local cut to defray my extra copy/work time expenses - if
there wasn't much to a particular table/submission, I cut half
of it back to the local, along with their copies, so that they
didn't feel 'left out' of the loop.

I don't think it is that the forms are 'painful, tedious or unpleasant', 
just that a lot of submitters feel that, because we work with the forms
a lot, we know what to do to fill them out correctly. I still make
the submitter put their name/address/phone number/DOB in so that there
is no question that I have the right person with the right paperwork -
if it is in my handwriting, I sometimes get things mixed up! :-)
