Footsox, I'm not one of the tax experts who hangs out here, but rather one of the taxpayers who listens to them. My suggestion is to get a copy of TurboTax (what I use) or equivalent and work it out early. TT will probably be available to download some time in December so you could begin playing with numbers. Once you have gone through that I think you will have the confidence you need to skip the accountant. And if you still feel uncomfortable it won't be too late to use the CPA anyway.
