If you are running OSX and are connected via a modem to a phone line, you can "Print a PDF to FAX" which will do what you want.  You need to identify your operating system and connections to get help.

As said above you can subscribe to and online fax service where you send the document as an email and the service retransmits as a Fax and acts as a receiver for the incoming fax and retransmits it to you as emai.

If you have a combination Printer/Scanner/fax machine It will come with software that loads on your computer to handle faxing for you either across the intenet or with a connection to your phone line.

Just Google for fax services. You scan something in, and they can send it, usually for $$$. Some office supply stores also offer a service. Just print out what you want and go there.

 

If you have a modem with fax support, some versions of Windows come with basic fax software, or can be downloaded as an extra.
