I'm venturing this season to do my own taxes and was wondering what recommendations this board would have on which software to use, e.g. turbotax, taxcut, etc., if one was better than another, particularly for owning rental properties. I've had a tax preparer do my taxes the last four years, paid for by my employer because I was living overseas. Now that I'm back stateside that luxury is no longer provided as I will no longer have any foreign income recognized in '03. I don't think my tax situation is too complex, own my own home, own two rental properties in another state, charitable contributions, etc.

While your situation isn't too complex for retail tax prep software, I would generally recommend that anyone with rental properties see a tax professional. There are lots of ways to screw up.
