To me I'd rather have the CPA's signature on the forms, because if I screw up I am fully liable. If the CPA screws up, there's some leeway on the audit trail. Also, with the CPA you can ask questions and get answers right away. I would trust them more than Intuit's help line. Not to mention, some of these older crusty accountants know little bits that software doesn't that can help you save a bit more.
