I was wondering if anyone has put Turbo Tax up against an accountant.

I'm actually an accountant and I actually do my taxes on my own and then buy turbo tax to double check that I did everything correctly. I just write off the price of the software when I do my taxes. It all depends. Some accountants are willing to take more risks to get you a higher return. Personally, I would rather lose $50 - $200 then be audited by the IRS. Hope that helps.
