— Document upload flows are terrible, and valuable tax data is under-utilized

From a user’s perspective, the usual tax form upload process goes:

  1. Go on every payroll platform and financial provider
  2. Somehow find where the tax forms are on every platform 🥵
  3. Download every tax form
  4. Organize these files
  5. Upload files

Through their research, the Taiki team found that this process can take a person more than 25 hours per year. The worst part is that companies know this is a problem but can’t do anything about it unless you’re Intuit and can spend engineering resources to build integrations.

Plus, there is a ton of unexplored tax data that can be used to build new tax, accounting, and fintech experiences. This data is under-utilized because the relevant information is difficult to gather.


Use Taiki to integrate with the most popular payroll and financial providers. Get the documents and data that your software needs. Help your users skip the document upload process. Utilize this valuable data to build new experiences!

Taiki supports both direct file extraction and targeted data retrieval.
