Top 10 Tax Procrastinating Cities

Don't fret if you still haven't tackled your 2008 tax return — you still have more than a week to file! April 15 is your deadline, so pencil in a date between now and then to complete what's been hanging over your head since the new year. If you're in danger of missing the big day, do yourself a favor and file for an extension (you're still not excused from paying Uncle Sam on the 15th if you owe money this year).

As an admitted procrastinator when it comes to things I dread, I always feel better knowing that I'm in good company. TurboTax compiled a list of the top tax procrastinating cities using last year's filing data. Check out the top 10 cities below.

  1. San Francisco, CA
  2. Houston, TX
  3. New York, NY
  4. Chicago, IL
  5. San Diego, CA
  6. Phoenix, AZ
  7. Seattle, WA
  8. Los Angeles, CA
  9. Dallas, TX
  10. Las Vegas, NV

Whoo! My city's #2...and I totally haven't even thought about taxes - I have grad school decisions to make! :D

this list is dumb. those are all big cities. of course they would have more procrastinators, they're bigger cities! plus, they probably have more of an opportunity to have other people file for them, and don't use turbo tax

Not surprised that NYC is on there. I know so many people who say they can't find the time.

i love that NYC is on this list - i'm here and i think that a lot of folks here are just so busy that they forget to file. for myself i tried to file as soon as i got my forms but the guy who was doing my taxes wasn't very smart so i had to leave and then finally got them done last weekend.
