Crowd-Sourcing Effort Aims to Improve Service for Taxpayers
The IRS recently announced that they are teaming with the Mortgage Bankers Association (MBA) to start the Tax Design Challenge, a new three-week crowdsourcing competition that is open to taxpayers across the country. The IRS hopes this program will help find ways to improve the online experience for taxpayers.
This announcement comes on the heels of the public forums being held by the Taxpayer Advocate, who has expressed the need for opening discussion of the Future State plan to the public.
The IRS will start accepting submissions this Sunday, April 17 at TaxDesignChallenge.com. Participants have until May 10, 2016 to register.
