Financial Planning / Tax Strategies

I am 31 and have always done my taxes personally. However, this year I changed careers (from engineering to teaching) moved from CA to NY, and sold a townhouse in CO (my former former residence) that I had been renting for the last two years. I do understand that since I lived in the townhouse 2 out of the last 5 years, I don't have to pay capital gains (except for the amount I claimed for depreciation since I have been renting it).

Needless to say, I think my taxes may be too complicated to do on my own this year. Any suggestions for tax preparation help in New York City? I would also prefer to pay a professional that could help with my taxes AND give me some fee based financial planning assistance. I made a decent profit from selling my townhouse and want to do some long term investing. I will not be buying another house in the near future.
