iPhone, iPad Apps to Ease the Burden of Tax Season
If the only two sure things in life are death and taxes, you can be sure that the next-closest thing is finding an application to help you ease the burdens of life—and that includes paying the taxman. As the dreaded 2013 tax season 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). 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. While the economy has been showing signs of general improvement lately, it is critical for small businesses to keep track of every expense to maximize tax breaks and returns. 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 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.
