A fax cover sheet that lists the specific person the fax is for ensures that the documents being sent get to the right person within the organization. The sender of a fax should include his contact information so that the recipient can contact him after receiving the message. Including the number of pages on the fax cover sheet ensures that the recipient knows when he has received all the pages in the fax.
