Monday is the last day to file your 2012 tax returns, unless you've gotten an extension.
As a person who turned term papers in early in college, I have never understood the last-minute filers. But I know some.
A 2010 Psychology Today analysis said people who file their tax returns at the last moment (year after year) likely suffer from chronic procrastination. It's not easy being a procrastinator in a deadline-ruled country like ours.
Procrastination may start in childhood. Children of harsh, controlling parents use procrastination as a quiet rebellion, according to Psychology Today. Email and social media sites, such as Facebook, allow modern-day procrastinators many distractions.
So if you haven't finished or mailed your taxes yet, stop reading this blog and get working. Uncle Sam, and your family, will thank you.
