    Bismillah hir-Rahman nir-Rahim !

    (Fatwa: 740/726/SN=7/1438)

    If the responsibilities of checking the forms and recording the contents are not related to interest based dealings (i.e. loan, fixed deposit etc) rather they are related with other lawful affairs, then in the above mentioned case, your job is lawful and the income shall be lawful, according to Shariah.
