    Hi adrienne2,

    Excellent & Informative Hub.

    Your absolutely right, Having an Accountant prepare tax returns can be very costly and they are only human which means mistakes are made especially by the inexperienced.

    I've used "Turbo Tax" on several occasions and the in depth software certainly does make this daunting task much easier to accomplish without the added expense of hiring "H&R Block" or any others.

    Thanks for sharing,
