Wow. That's pretty ugly. You'd think with all the folks out-of-work these days that the IRS could have found a decent web redesign team... or simply decided not to try to fix what wasn't really broken. The IRS site used to be pretty functional and navigable. Hopefully they didn't screw that up too.

What is with this horrible orange in the color scheme? Just like the Checkpoint re-design (although that's got problems beyond just the color). The old IRS site was the most useful government website I've ever come across. What a waste of taxpayer money.

I'm just glad the IRC isn't broken down by whether you need to file a return, pay taxes, or have a question.

What everyone else said. I loved the old no-nonsense arrangement, which put you 2-3 clicks away from anything. But I guess we'll all get used to the new. At least it's not the disaster that other IRS computer initiatives have been.
