I've been using the tax prep service of one of the Big 4 firms.
Coincidentally tried one of the 3 on the US Embassy list many years ago, thinking to benefit from the lower fee, but ended up paying more in taxes.

As the caveat on the Embassy's webpage says,
"The U.S. Embassy, Singapore assumes no responsibility for the professional ability or integrity of any of the firms or persons whose names appear on this list.."

I use a US based tax accountant who has broad experience in foreign taxation issues.
