    Dallas has once again made TurboTax's annual list of top 10 tax procrastinating cities.

    Big D apparently hates to do its taxes.

    Dallas has once again made TurboTax's annual list of top 10 tax procrastinating cities. For the second year in a row, it has come in at No. 9.

    TurboTax based the list on its customers last year, so perhaps it's more accurate to say that users of its service in Dallas are procrastinators.

    Two other Texas cities are also full of tax procrastinators. Austin came in at No. 4, and Houston can be proud (or not) of its No. 1 ranking.

    With three cities, the Lone Star State ties California for being with biggest procrastinating state on the list.

    But Dallas residents have plenty of company in kicking the tax-return can down the road. The IRS estimates that as many as 20 percent of all Americas put off sending in their tax returns until the last two weeks, according to TurboTax.

    TurboTax compiled its list based on the number of tax returns filed electronically with its service between April 14-17, 2009.
