I only see inputs for spending, portfolio and years.

Then a graph with a lot of lines?

You really want to read the instructions. At the main page, read the explanatory paragraphs, then in the header, click "How It Works" for more information.

It's quite powerful, but you have to use it the way it was designed.

At first, the tabs at the top seemed to elude me too. Step through each one.

At first it took me a while to figure that one out too.... I guess I was thinking it would be one long input page.... but the designers were ahead of their time given the recent changes on the Form 1040.
