I have my doubts whether the lack of Shockwave is the cause. But you could try
going to:
You can get to there by
Then clicking shockwave, followed be the "Standalone Installer" link in the
instructions. The downloaded file, Shockwave_Installer_Slim.exe, runs fine under
Wine and installs the SwSupport.dll dll into windows/system32/Macromed/Common.
And the TaxCut installer does find it then.
In general, you can find out what DLLs are found by setting the WINEDEBUG
environment variable to +loaddll.
It would be interesting to know what happens next on a real Windows system. On
my Win2000 system, I also get the splash screen, followed by the grey window. So
I am assuming at that point it should attempt to read another file off the CD.

When running the installer, be sure to for change to the CD directory, that is:
cd /mnt/cdrom (or wherever)
and then
wine TaxCut.exe
Some installers are picky about that. 

I'll poke around a bit more and see if anything jumps out at me.
