Looks fine to me.

What ever was used usually does not matter. Some remind me about that story about the artist and the brush.

Bob has a point

that a Web site's look isn't defined by the tool used, but rather my the skill of the person using that tool. For example, some can make a good looking Web sites in just Notepad, but others may require more of a user interface like Dreamweaver or Expression Web. It really all depends on what you're trying to accomplish and then choosing the right tool for that.

One suggestion - terms of service link is missing
Dec 17, 2010 12:52AM PST

I looked at your site, and I have one quick suggestion. I clicked the Trust button, and at the bottom you ask people to agree to your Terms of Service, which you say are 'linked from this page' but as far as I can tell, there is no link.
If you're asking people to let you do things as potentially scary as send some of their info to the IRS, I would definitely make it easy for people to read what they're agreeing to. A good idea would be, within that sentence, actually make the words 'Terms of Service' a link to your Terms of Service.

engage a web designer

You should engage a web designer instead of doing design your own. For me, i'm a good programmer but never good in design.
