Either form is acceptable and I have used both without any issues.

Hi Brad,

I have a question regarding cover sheet for PPA. On your site (http://patentfile.org/how-to-file-a-provisional-patent/) you have a link to the http://www.uspto.gov/forms/sb0016.pdf but on the USPTO I found two different cover sheets here (https://www.uspto.gov/patent/forms/forms-patent-applications-filed-or-after-september-16-2012)
the first one is:
https://www.uspto.gov/sites/default/files/forms/ProvisionalSB.pdf
and the second:
https://www.uspto.gov/sites/default/files/documents/sb0016.pdf

Could you please advise which form should I fill?
Thanks
