Microsoft Money Plus Deluxe 2008

Once again, we don't find this upgrade necessary, although some might come to rely upon the new Insights views of finances, and uber-organized users can link transactions to images of checks and receipts.

QuickBooks 2008 Simple Start Plus Pack
REVIEW

QuickBooks 2008 Simple Start Plus Pack

QuickBooks Premier 2008 remains the top small-business accounting program. Its guidance for novices is top-notch, and it comes in a variety of editions tailored for specific industries. Version 2008 isn't an essential upgrade for QuickBooks 2007 users, but it's a good buy for users of earlier versions, and for anyone new to accounting software.

TurboTax Home & Business 2006 - without State
REVIEW

TurboTax Home & Business 2006

With its cogent, easy-to-understand interview and clean design, Intuit TurboTax 2006 remains one of the top tax-prep programs out there. However, it's pricier than H&R Block's TaxCut, which is the better bargain.

TaxCut Premium + State 2006
REVIEW

TaxCut Premium + State 2006

For do-it-yourself tax preparers, H&R Block TaxCut Premium 2006 is a solid buy. TaxCut is a breeze to learn and notably less expensive than archrival TurboTax Premier.
