I'm not sure what the connection is between tax season and RAID, but have you considered software RAID? I set up a desktop to use as a backup computer and wanted it to use two disks in a mirror. The motherboard I bought came with hardware RAID, but after much reading of forums and elsewhere I concluded that Linux software RAID was preferable. And if you haven't bought a card yet, you can save the money and spend it on beer instead.
It took me a while to figure out the software RAID utility (mdadm), but it does a great job.
Just a suggestion for you to consider.
