While underachievers may take comfort in this statistic, the rest of us are wondering where all that time goes.

The study was a joint effort by AOL and Salary.com, based in their findings after polling more than ten thousand employees in America.

DearIRS

According to Bloomberg, 2015 is the worst tax season in a long time. With the new Obamacare requirements, identity theft, IRS funding issues and taxpayers taking their time, there should be a rush at the end when April 15th comes.

Obamacare didn’t have income verification in place when it rolled out on HealthCare.com, so new enrollees estimated their income and got subsidies. The IRS is now reporting that 50% of enrollees underestimated their incomes, got a bigger subsidy than allowed, and now are having their tax refunds cut by $530. And for the 11% of Americans without health coverage they might be facing a penalty somewhere around $170.
