I think 4.

(1) tax returns with a disk found in software stores and accounting texts
- not parallel again with A disk and TEXTS..
(2) a tax return with a disk found in software stores and accounting texts
- OUT appears as if 3 people will file ONE tax return
(3) tax returns with disks found in a software store and an accounting text
- not parallel with DISKS and AN acounting text...
(4) tax returns with a disk found in a software store and an accounting text
- parallel with A DISK and AN ACCOUNTING TEXT
(5) a tax return with a disk found in a software store and an accounting text
- OUT Same as (2) appears as if 3 people will file ONE tax return

I think it's #4.

Disk is singular, so therefore, it shoudl be parallel to a software store and an accounting text. I dont believe A is the answer because how can "a" disk be found in multiples of software stores and accounting texts?

the use of 'and' in the sentence does sound really strange.

I'll go for #2 for the following reason.

a. three out of seven people will file tax return (not returns!)

this boils down to #2 & #4.

b. with a disk found in software stores and accounting texts sounds better than with a disk found in a software store and an accounting text
