    I think most tax software will work. Turbotax maybe? I just pay my cpa to do it for me.

    I think I might trust the software for the short form but as a business owner those days are long gone. With all the depreciation schedules and such I think my return is about 50 pages every year. Plus if you get audited the preparer has to accompany you and every bit helps. Now as for with holding we just use a payroll service and they are very good I have the payroll checks hand delivered to use next day after calling in the hours.

    for payroll and all the 940's 941's and other forms quickbooks works great for us.

    You probably know this, but to be clear, quickbooks works great to keep your books including payroll and payroll taxes - at years end you can export it to a tax preperation program or create and accountants copy for your cpa if you have someone do your taxes.
