As dreaded 2012 Tax Day fast approaches, it's easy for the small-business owner to get overwhelmed with the nitty-gritty accounting details that keep people up late at night (or screaming at their spreadsheet programs). With the economy lurching from month to month, it is critical for small businesses to keep track of every expense to maximize tax breaks and returns. Keeping track of receipts and expenditures is another critical part of small-business financing, which can save owners and their IT departments a lot of time and headaches in the future. Thankfully, Apple's App Store provides a slew of low-cost (and free) applications for the iPhone and iPad that can help alleviate a lot of the accounting difficulties small businesses face. From full-blown tax return services like TurboTax to nimble sales tax calculators and mileage logs for tax deduction or reimbursement, the App Store has you covered when the taxman comes a-calling.
