For many people, they usually start doing their income taxes as soon as they get their W-2’s back from their employers. However, there are some that like to wait until the deadline; which in most states if not all of them, is April 15th. Many times when people procrastinate in doing their income taxes; that usually means that they will end up paying back into the state or that they will break even.
By that, they will not end up getting a refund of any sort because they did not pay in enough taxes to what they grossed for that years income. Where as those that files their income taxes right away, they will usually end up getting a refund of some sort! Most often when a family does not gross a lot of money, their income tax returns will be fairly high.
