CHICAGO — Have you filed your taxes yet? I haven’t! Here are some apps that can help you this tax season and beyond:

Ask A Tax Preparer
Free for iOS and Android

Got a question about taxes? This app most likely has the answer. Search the app’s extensive Q&A for the information you need, and even find a tax preparer near you if you have more questions.

H&R Block’s 1040EZ 2014 app
Free for iOS and Android

This app will make filling out your W-2 a snap. Simply take a picture of the form to quickly import your income and withheld tax information — no typing needed! You’ll need to double-check the information, but it should help you skip a few steps.

ItsDeductible Donation Tracker
Free for iPhone

While it’s a little too late to use for your 2014 tax filing, the ItsDeductible app is an easy way to keep track of your charitable giving throughout the year. If you use TurboTax for filing your taxes, you can easily import the app’s data into the program.

Free for iOS and Android

Use IRS2Go to check your refund status, find free tax preparation assistance, sign up for helpful tax tips, and follow the IRS on Twitter, Tumblr, and YouTube. The app is available in both English and Spanish.
