Back when I was a new teacher making almost no money, I brought my taxes to H. & R. Block, which was right down the street from me. Then one year I found out the lazy slob doing my taxes, who probably shucked oysters the rest of the year, had neglected a deduction for what I paid in state taxes. Since then, I've paid a CPA who actually knows what he's doing.
In case you need one, here's another reason to avoid the Blockheads--they might send your refund to the wrong person.
