Due to a series of factors, including a D.C. holiday and April 15 falling on the weekend, federal taxes aren't actually due to be filed until today.

Early filers: More people than ever are filing their taxes early this year. Adobe estimates that 59% of online tax returns were filed in January and February this year, with early traffic to online tax sites up 2% from last year.

Procrastinators: The exception is millennials, who are more likely this year than last to file in the last day, according to a survey. Adobe says 12.4% of millennials are expected to wait until the last 24 hours, compared to 6.6% last year.
