The Challenge: Visualize Your Taxes
We give you the numbers; you make them speak to us.
Every year, Americans fill out income tax forms and make their payments to the IRS. It’s an important civic duty, but do we really know where our tax dollars go? Using data provided by WhatWePayFor.com, Eyebeam challenges you to create data visualizations that make it easier and more interesting for taxpayers to understand just how the government spends our money.
