Today's the big day, for those of you wanting to file their taxes on time, and there are plenty of people sprinting toward that finish line. There are also plenty of procrastinators.

Based on the numbers collected by TurboTax when its users file their taxes online, Intuit has compiled a list of the cities with the most tax procrastinators. And from the looks of it, most of those in the top ten are repeat performers, making their inclusion in this list next year almost a sure thing.

Here are the top ten procrastinating cites when it comes to filing taxes:
  1. San Francisco
  2. Houston
  3. New York
  4. Chicago
  5. San Diego
  6. Phoenix
  7. Seattle
  8. Los Angeles
  9. Dallas
  10. Las Vegas
Don't forget: If you can't file your taxes on time, get an extension by filing Form 4868. If you think you're going to owe money, you should send it in with the form. Filing an extension does not mean you have extra time to pay. It only gives you extra time to file the actual tax return.

Health Care and Your Taxes: What's the Connection?

Your cost for Marketplace health insurance is based on the income you file on your tax return.

Everyone has to have health insurance and by filing your taxes, you let the government know if you carry health insurance. The tax system acts as a way for the government to levy a penalty on those who don?t have it and to provide assistance, by means of a tax credit, to those who do.
