My wife and I began to use a friend's friend, a CPA, to do our taxes about 7 years ago. At the time, we had no kids, two jobs, and a house. Should be easy to handle. But my wife, a corporate financial analyst, did not want to deal with the hassle and we were happy to pay $40 to have the tax done by the CPA.

Over the years, we have two kids now, and some forms of investment or change jobs in mid-year, we are still happy to pay him, last year for $125.

I guess we will have him do ours again for 1999, maybe he will charge us more for other new activities.

What I like about him is he informed me last year that I need to do 4 estimated tax checks out to CA due to my potential investment short term gain.
