Shocking Amount Of Americans Don’t Know When Tax Day Is

While we have a few months before we have to start worrying about our taxes, it seems there are a lot of people who probably aren’t concerned, because they have no idea when they are due.

A new survey finds:

  • Less than a third of Americans actually know when their taxes are due.
  • Only 27% of Americans were aware that April 15th is tax day.
  • Plus, 24% said they didn’t know the cut off for filing an extension, with only 15% correctly knowing it was April 1st.

Of course there could be a good reason so few people are aware of tax day. It’s simply because they’d rather think about anything else.

  • 25% of Americans say filing their taxes is a major cause of stress.
  • In fact, it’s such a stressor that folks would be willing to do some crazy things if it meant not having to file them. Things they’d rather do include:
    • Lose an hour of sleep a night for a month (46%)
    • Get a bad haircut (36%)
    • Lose favorite sweater forever (36%)
    • Eat a bowl of insects (30%)
    • Give up chocolate for a year (28%)
    • Walk to work for a week (20%)
