I have done taxes on my own, with a qualified accountant and Turbo Tax. On my own was fine when taxes were simple for individuals. Qualified accountant has made many errors. Now they use software like Turbo Tax. Turbo Tax is great, and gets better each year. My taxes were 174 pages this year, I could not do this by hand.
You can always hire an account to run your taxes, then enter info into Turbo Tax and check the difference.
For next year, depending on results, you can make an educated decision on how to do taxes.
