Why do people file so early?

I don't wait til April either, but damn, some of you are a bit zealous with these tax returns!

We usually do ours in mid to late Feb.

What's the rush?

Some people are using the money to pay off debt that is accruing interest. Maybe some have other urgent bills. Or they want to invest it. Or they want to treat themselves earlier rather than later. I can think of a lot of answers to this question, can't you?

Get it out of the way.

If I leave it, I'll end up forgetting about it, or I'll lose some important piece of paperwork or something else equally stupid.

I don't normally file until mid Feb anyway, but that's mostly because I have to wait for other people to send me the paperwork I need.
