Does anybody have/know a tax preparer who interfaces 
well with TurboTax or the like?  

I find myself, year-after-year, wrestling with my 
own overly-complicated tax declaration (business, 
self-employment, IRAs and other investments, 
foreign tax credit).  

I often think I know far too little about using 
the power of today's technologies effectively or 
collaboratively in this area.  But no tax preparer 
I've used seems able or inclined to help.  In a 
bad year preparation fees approach taxes paid.  

Has anyone found a tax preparer who specializes 
(coaches) in leveraging, say, TurboTax to: 
  o  Make preparation quicker, simpler, cheaper  
  o  Better use data already collected with Quicken  
  o  Leave more time to focus on  
       - Tax and financial planning  
       - Paying neither more, nor less, than one's share  
       - Accuracy in following IRS regulations 
         (not inviting an audit)
