They're not cheap, but the best of the best are Turbo Tax and Tax Cut.

If by "best of the best" you mean best marketting/advertising, or best marketshare, then yes, yes they are.

For the OP, I'd probably go with Taxact - it's what I use - it's cheaper (less advertising/marketting) and has more functionality than what I've needed. (ex. Normal investments, no problem on any of them. Farm income? I think they all support that too, but isn't something I need)

As mentioned before on this board there is one caveat with TurboTax: This year they stripped down the functionality of the desktop product, so you might have to buy a higher tier of the product. E.g. schedule D used to be supported in the Deluxe tier, but this year you'll need the Premier tier for that.

I've been using TurboTax for many year and have been satisfied with it, but this year I'm seriously thinking about switching to H & R Block (formerly known as "Tax Cut").
