Badly designed quiz - as a minimum, make answers yellow boxes.

This quiz has been taken 28 times. I counted it. Also you took it for yourself 21,655 times. That's how you managed to get 21,683 takes. You're a joke. You lied about the "updates" as well, this quiz has never been updated.

It's been a difficult quiz for many. That is why I changed the quiz and revised it. Sorry you did so poorly, but it is US taxes which you probably are not familiar with and thus willing to make quite the statements which we can expect from abroad.

Quizzes like these should be in the multiple choice format, so that the quiz taker could only choose one answer at a time, and not type T/F or A/B/C or all numbers between 1 and 5, one after the other.
