Tag Editor supports tags for MP3, AIFF, WAV, FLAC, and MP4/M4A files. Tags are embedded in audio files.

Also, Tag Editor can parse iTunes, playlists, CUE sheets, and shortcuts to open referenced audio files for tagging. You can export organized music to iTunes, playlist, CSV, or text file using the 'Export To' feature.
