I was filing taxes. Then I got an idea.

I thought to myself,

"What does this all mean?"

"Why did these forms need to be so complicated and inpersonal?"

So I took it upon myself to create a mobile app that helps you file your 1040 [not so] EZ.

Here is a snapshot.


As someone passionate about form design and derive a lot of enjoyment out of simplifying complex systems,

I decided to redesign the archaic tax form into something modern.

First, I did a task flow of the current filing process.



Then I asked myself a couple of questions:

What did people want to accomplish?

When were they most likely doing it?

What are the 25 other things they'll be doing simultaneously?

How do I make this process intuitive?
