Should use tax software or accnt ?

Should i just use tax software or hire an accountant ?

I'm an IT consultant, pretty straightforward, just registered my business in '03.. first year filing..

The learning curve for the software can be fairly steep, especially if you miss a deduction.

If you're interested in doing your own taxes I'd advise getting the software, doing it yourself, then taking your info to an accountant. Compare the results for a year or two, do it on your own only after you're sure of your work.

ok , sounds good..
