Always did them really early. This year I will start them on April 10. Soon enough.

Well, I dragged out my computer and gathered all the documents and started entering everything into TurboTax yesterday. We'll owe big...I'll look at it again next week to finish it.

I should add that in the last 8 years I worked, I had to file not one but two state income tax forms. One was for my home state (NY) but the other was a non-resident form for the state I worked in (NJ). I always filed the NJ one in February because it was closely related to the NY one due to the resident credit I would receive off my NY taxes. The plan was to give the NJ one some time to get processed in case they told me I made some bonehead mistake on it. I could then fix it, maybe in time before the NY one was due so I would not have to file an amended NY return due to a mistake on the NJ return. This scenario never happened, thankfully, but the timing gave me some small comfort.

One small benefit to ER is that I never have to deal with the NJ tax forms ever again and the NY return became a lot easier.
Retired in late 2008 at age 45. Cashed in company stock, bought a lot of shares in a big bond fund and am living nicely off its dividends. IRA, SS, and a pension await me at age 60 and later. No kids, no debts.

We always wait until late March to work on taxes and e-file early April - mainly because we want to wait for any revised 1099s.

We do quarterly estimated taxes so I keep pretty close tabs on our income through the year.
Retired since summer 1999.

I don't consider waiting until early April procrastinating.

Really no change here....if I am getting a refund I do them early. If I owe, I file April 15. This year I owe so haven't really started yet.
