Americans Are Filing Taxes At A Record Clip

Americans are evidently more eager to file their income taxes than they have been in years, even though the number who expect a refund is little changed.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 46% of American Adults have already filed their income taxes. Nearly as many (43%) intend to file by the April 15 deadline, while just four percent (4%) are planning on getting an extension. Seven percent (7%) are undecided. To see survey question wording, click here.)
