I just created a Docker image that runs the EasyTax2014AG application. It was pretty straight forward to write the Dockerfile. I have based it on the official Ubuntu image because I wanted the Dockerfile to be transparent so that you can actually trust there was nothing installed that tries to steal your data in some way.

Here are the instructions to build and run the container
docker build -t christianmenz/easytax2014ag . xhost + docker run -it --rm -v /tmp/.X11-unix:/tmp/.X11-unix -v /home/<yourusername>/EasyTax2014/:/root/TaxData -e DISPLAY=unix$DISPLAY christianmenz/easytax2014ag
Note: the important thing for you to change is the location where you will actually want to store your data. When using the application please make sure you save the data in the mounted directory (/root/TaxData). If you miss that point you could end up having lost all your changes.
OK, maybe I should do my taxes now.. :/
