tax code isn't easy to navigate. Just ask current U.S. treasury secretary Timothy
Geithner, who oversees the IRS. Geithner's nomination was almost derailed by

chalked up to error, errors which tax
experts agree are all too easy to make when filing.
Geithner had been filing his own taxes.

& Cons of Professional Tax Preparation
If you wish to find a CPA to help with your taxes be

Jackson Hewitt or Liberty Tax Service, consider requesting a
senior-level tax preparer.
