Default Recommendation for tax preparer?

These posts have been on here from time to time and never thought we'd need one.

We've are on a 16 month assignment back to Scotland and it is time to start thinking about our US federal 2017 tax return. We have 2 months income in the USA and the rest in UK.

We need someone to do our 2017 taxes. Companies in London are charging 3000gbp and up. Pretty straightforward return.

Any recommendations in either country?

Thank you in advance!

Honestly, I'm using TurboTax Deluxe.

It has the ability to declare your UK income and UK taxed at source income very easily and factors that into your return.

I was employed in the UK (whilst also tax resident in the US) Jan > September, but paid UK tax, TurboTax took this into account and gave me an (almost) full refund on the US tax owed for said income. Seemed to work well for me.

Edit: Oh, and it's like $40.

TurboTax worked well for me when I moved here and had income from both UK and US.
