The final file can be a TIFF, but it's better to keep the working file PSD.
I do use InDesign, but I usually give my files to printer as PDF. This
solves a lot of problems, but not all printers are set up to handle PDF
because it requires an up-to-date Adobe Post Script compatible RIP. The
Xerox color laser printers I'm using do very well with PDF, though.
