As reported by Intuit, maker of TurboTax.

SAN DIEGO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–April 1, 2009–It’s the 50 yard dash to the April 15 tax deadline and Intuit (NASDAQ: INTU), the maker of TurboTax® tax software products, has once again tallied last-minute online tax filings to find out which cities across the country are the biggest procrastinators when it comes to filing federal income tax returns.

The following list includes the TOP 10 TAX PROCRASTINATING CITIES IN AMERICA determined by the number of tax returns electronically filed online via the TurboTax Online service from April 13-April 17, 2008 (previous year ranking in parenthesis):

1. San Francisco, Calif. – (#5) – The Golden Gate City takes the gold this year when it comes to tax procrastinators, moving up from number 5.

2. Houston, Texas – (#3) – After being booted from the number 1 spot last year, which they have claimed more than any other city (three times), Houston barely misses out this year coming in at number 2.

3. New York, N.Y. – (#2) – The “City that Never Sleeps” has made a habit of snoozing through tax season. Although it has dropped one spot to number 3, New York has made it onto the top 10 list the last eight years.

4. Chicago, Ill. – (#1) – After taking the crown last year, the “Windy City” drops to number 4 on the list.

5. San Diego, Calif. – (#6) – The sun and sand are good distractions for San Diegans. Despite being home to TurboTax, San Diego manages to move up to number 5 this year.

6. Phoenix, Ariz. – (#13) – Returning to the list this year and making the biggest jump (from 13 to 6) is Phoenix.

7. Seattle, Wash. – (#7) – Seattle coffee must come in handy for all those procrastinators at tax time. For the second year running, Seattle comes in at number 7.

8. Los Angeles, Calif. – (#10) – Too busy chasing down celebrities? Los Angeles has once again made its way onto the list at number 8.

9. Dallas, Texas – (#11) – The 9 th largest city in the U.S. has gotten even bigger when it comes to tax procrastinators. Returning to the list this year is Dallas.

10. Las Vegas, Nev. – (#8) – Sin City proved to be too big of a temptation for taxpayers last year. Wrapping up the top 10 list this year is Las Vegas.

Dropping off the list this year: Austin, Texas; San Antonio, Texas

Extended List 11-20.

11. Austin, Texas

12. Atlanta, Ga.

13. Portland, Ore.

14. Philadelphia, Pa.

15. Washington, D.C.

16. Orlando, Fla.

17. Denver, Colo.

18. Charlotte, N.C.

19. Tampa, Fla.

20. Indianapolis, Ind.

Last-Minute Tax Tips for Procrastinators:

Even procrastinators have things they can do to save money on their taxes. Taxpayers have up until the April 15 deadline to contribute to an IRA.

Don’t forget charitable contributions made in 2008. Even mileage to and from volunteering is deductible.

Go online. Taxpayers can go online to prepare and e-file taxes up to the 11 th hour at www.TurboTax.com – it’s fast, easy and convenient.

E-file. Taxpayers can avoid the long lines at the post office and can get their refund back in as little as 8 days with direct deposit.

Not going to make the April 15 deadline? File for an extension. Taxpayers will get an extra 6 months to file (to Oct. 15 2009). But remember…an extension to file is NOT an extension to pay taxes. If a taxpayer owes money, they will need to pay their tax bill by April 15, or face penalties.

Mike Habib - Thank you for being so professional and honest and taking care of my brothers IRS situation. We are so relieved it is over and the offer in compromise process went just as you said. Mike is very professional and will give you honest answers to the OIC process and you can really trust him. You won't be sorry you chose him!Joe and Deborah V.
Mike is a true professional. He really came thru for me and my business. Dealing with the IRS is very scary. I'm a small business person who works hard and Mike helped me see that they are not that scary after all. He was always there with the answers I needed and was very good about calling me back which I appreciated since your first reaction is to freak out and ask a million questions. He solved a messy case and worked very hard to resolve it. His rates are VERY reasonable for the amount of work he does! I give him my highest recommendation!Marcie R.
Mike was incredibly responsive to my IRS issues. Once I decided to go with him (after interviewing numerous other tax professionals), he got on the phone with the IRS immediately (as in the same day I signed with him) to squash an impending issue. And he worked directly with them to quickly come to a resolution I am very happy with. I'd highly recommend reaching out to Mike to see if he can help you with any IRS issues. I'm very satisfied!Marshall W.
I’ve seen and heard plenty of commercials on TV and radio for businesses offering tax help. I did my research on many of them only to discover numerous complaints and unresolved tax issues. I found Mike Habib through my own online search and contacted him. He was very professional with great communication, always answering my questions and concerns. Mike resolved my complicated tax problem just as he said he would. I would definitely recommend his services to family and friends.Nancy & Sal V.
