Your Betterment tax forms will be available in early February. You can download them at Betterment.com.

You have until April 15 to contribute to your 2014 IRA.

First, there is denial. Then relief, and then possibly a nice refund after it’s all said and done.

We’re talking about tax season, and it has arrived. It’s also a good time to take care of other financial business, like maxing out an IRA or rolling over an old 401(k).

Whether you are collecting receipts in a shoebox—or have everything neatly organized so that you can file the minute your tax forms are ready—here’s a calendar to keep you on track this tax season.
