The Minnesota Department of Revenue Tax Web App project won the national 2019 ClearMark Award, which recognizes organizations for best plain language principles in action. This application helps users find local general sales and use tax rate for any location in Minnesota. HEI's team customized the application to meet the agency's needs for usability that were not out-of-the-box solutions and the agency nominated this project for the award.
Comment from the judges: “Gaining insight from a survey and web-data analysis, the developers cut directly to a clear, effective solution for the audience’s specific need – a map. Without distracting add-ons, the map is incredible easy to navigate, and its layout lets you not only find tax rates for a specific area but also compare them across the state.”
Congratulations to all involved!
