InstantTaxBack.com is a service that completes tax returns on behalf of foreign students who have worked in the United States.
We are different from our competition in that we do it much faster and recover much more money than our customers would get with any of our competition.
We target foreign students who have went to school and worked in the United States and need to file their tax returns to get their money back from the IRS.
We require two pages to be designed - a home page and one inside page.
The overall design needs to be a clean, smooth design, that is easy to read, and not cluttered. Generally we like objects with slightly rounded corners and thin, unassuming borders where they are needed.
We have uploaded a sample layout for the home page which we would like. That is the basic layout that we are looking for although we are very open to your individual interpretation of how it will flow together. The elements that are contained in the layout are the elements that need to be present in the home page. If you think they would look better rearranged or presented in a slightly different way, we would love to see it!
I would also like to incorporate into the design some small buttons or some way of switching the language of the site to spanish. This could be represented by text or it could be represented by some sort of recognizable button or flag.
We would like the designs in a photoshop .psd file with the layers in tact. We will need to be able to adjust certain elements to create the rest of the pages and to slice the file to turn it into a webpage.
Please leave text on the buttons editable so that we can make changes to it.
The content area of the website shouldn't be any wider than 950px. The background can be wider than that and should be able to stretch or repeat to take up the extra browser space depending on the width of the users browser.
For the menu system please show one of the menu items in their "selected" state.
We would also like to incorporate some symbolism of security and trust. This website will be a secure website, and we would like that demonstrated in the design somehow.
Page 2 of the website will just be a "Frequently Asked Questions" page. I don't want it to be just a long list of text though. I would like to see a nice representation of a FAQ page with maybe some sort of highlighting of the questions that works with the design of the website and maybe some kind of clip art picture by each question to kind of make the page more interesting.
Page 2 should be really easy to complete once the design of the home page is complete.
We are looking forward to the great designs! Have fun with it!
