Now is the time to start some tax planning to ensure that you've had adequate income taxes deducted from your pay check to avoid having to pay taxes in April, or worse yet, pay a fine. I found some great tax planning apps for iPhone and iPad that can do the calculations for you, and all but one app is free. The apps also have references to various tax tables, information and advice, and calculate tax deductions, self employment and other taxes. Some do a what-if analysis to help you come up with a plan for reducing taxes, and I've included three good iOS apps for tracking tax-related receipts throughout the year.
My picks for the best iOS tax planning apps for 2013 are:
