Today, the IRS announced the Tax Design Challenge, a crowdsourcing competition to begin reimagining the taxpayer experience of the future.  The goal of the competition is to develop new concepts for designing, organizing, and presenting tax information in a way that makes it easier for taxpayers to understand their taxpayer responsibilities and effectively use their own taxpayer data.  Cash prizes up to $10,000 will be funded by the competition cosponsor, the Mortgage Bankers Association, and paid by the IRS.  For more information visit: www.taxdesignchallenge.com
