I've used TurboTax ever since it became available for the IBM-compatible PC, and tried TaxCut one year to compare it to TT. I also tried a highly-recommended (and highly-priced) CPA for a couple of years. My opinion: TurboTax is cheaper than the CPA and a better package than TC by far. Using any package yourself makes you understand your tax situation better, and will encourage you to keep better records in the <u>following</u> year. And in my case, TT could have saved me about $15K in taxes in one year alone because my CPA neglected to take advantage of a quirk in the law that TT pointed out.

If you wait until early in the calendar year, you can usually get a hefty discount on a TT/Quicken package. I don't think much of Intuit's support, but overall I'm a satisfied customer.
