Tax time is ticking, and some cities are dawdling until the last minute.

TurboTax recently released a list of the top tax procrastinating cities, determined by the number of tax returns electronically filed last year between April 14 and April 17. California and Texas each had three cities on the list, while eight of the top ten cities are west of the Mississippi River.

Chicago took the top spot for the first time in the seven years the list of late filers has been compiled, while New York hustled in at second. Houston, which has topped the list more than any other city, came in third, while Austin — one of the fastest growing cities in America — moved up on the list to fourth place. San Francisco, San Diego, Seattle, Las Vegas, San Antonio, and Los Angeles also made the cut, while San Jose, Calif., and Phoenix dropped off the list this year.
