Good tax preparers?

accounting ledgerLiz emails:

Can you or your readers recommend a good person or place to get taxes prepared? Suggestions for independent CPAs or accountants outside of H&R Block and Liberty Tax are especially welcome!

Somewhat surprisingly, it looks like we haven't had this exact question before -- we had one about small business tax prep, and one about accountants. And those are both a few years old, and things change.

So, if you have a suggestion for Liz, please share! A please include a line or two about why you're recommending that person/firm.

Reasonably priced, gets the job done quick, and allows you to send all documents through dropbox, which make it very easy! She has always gotten me a substantial refund!
