Well, you won't have to hire one next year probably anyway, but a good CPA is worth their weight in gold Cecil. Good CPA's don't make mistakes as the software doesn't allow them. Hate to be the bearer of bad news, but unless your wife is a CPA you'e probably missing out on some write-offs due to the ever changing tax laws and different ways to approach things depending on your unique tax situation. That's why places like H&R Block suck b/c they hire a bunch of part-timers to cover the tax season and they don't do squat to maximize your return b/c they don't know all the tax laws. I use to do my taxes myself early on and it's simply not worth my time. I'm LLC'd so my taxes are probably more involved than yours and the filing paperwork alone is over a half inch thick. I tally everything but she still has to go through it all. She charges me around $250 and signs off on the paperwork and if I'm ever audited she is responsible to explain things, not me. Plus, that $250 is deductible too!
