How complicated is your tax return? If you've got any mutual funds or stocks and bonds, and especially if you've sold anything, it gets pretty complicated. I ended up sending everything to my accountant in NYC and having him do it. Even though I had only worked four months of 2002, my taxes were still a huge nightmare and I had the New York State return for Part-Time Residents to deal with, as well.  

During tax season, the US consulate has someone who will help for free, but I think it's only for straightforward taxes. You can download Tax Act for free at www.taxact.com if you have a plain vanilla return.

And if you're desperate, I can give you my accountant's phone number.
