89% Plan To Meet April 18 Tax Deadline

Once again, the overwhelming majority of Americans have filed their income taxes just in the nick of time.

With the deadline for filing extended until tomorrow, the latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that nine-out-of-10 American Adults expect to file on time, with 79% who have already filed their taxes and 10% who intend to do so by April 18. Six percent (6%) still plan to get an extension, while another six percent (6%) remain undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
