While printing the background colors are turned off by the following settings:

  1. InfoPath
  2. Internet Explorer

 

Solution

There are multiple areas for us to make it enabled.  I am listing all the potential areas you might need.

You can enable it through InfoPath Designer in File > Options menu:
