Top Tax Cities According To Foursquare
By: Chad Sweely

As we all know, the deadline to have business and individual tax forms mailed in and submitted is not too far away. With this in mind, many of us that are the procrastination kind will flee to various tax preparing companies for help for the ambiguous tax-related questions that we should have asked "way back when." Taxes are confusing for a lot of people, due to all of the calculations, paperwork, and organizing that only goes into this one daunting part of the fiscal year.

Foursquare, the Internet's most-popular check-in site (mostly for mobile devices) has been curious about the amount of procrastinators existing with the tax world, and has decided to study last year's check-in data to determine which cities within the United States hold the biggest tax procrastinators. I have provided the full list below (source: BusinessInsider):
