Tax Software or Human Accountant?

 Assets Resources 2008 04 Turbotax-Header
Now that most of you have finished your taxes (hopefully), I’m curious as to whether you did them via computer software (e.g. TurboTax, etc.) or via a human accountant. Lifehacker’s Gina Trapani did a comparison this year of the two methods.

Personally, I’ve been using TurboTax for the past few years, but I have to admit that regardless of all the wizards and help screens, I still question whether I filled out certain portions correctly. I’m told that in general, hiring an accountant is more expensive, but when you think about it, you’re paying for your ease of mind.

Any opinions?
