Consumers would do almost anything than pay their taxes, according to a new survey, even if it meant shaving their heads, foregoing the internet and social media for a year, or having the same song stuck in their heads.
The survey, from the online marketplace Offers.com, polled more than 1,000 consumers across the country. It found approximately 20 percent of consumers would rather go without the internet or social media for a year than pay taxes, with 24 percent even saying they would prefer to shave their head. The survey also broke down taxpayers along demographic lines, such as generation and gender. It found the 18-to-24-year-old age bracket has the highest concern about making a mistake when filing their taxes, with 25 percent of them saying they worry about this.
As opposed to paying their taxes, the survey found that 14 percent of men and 24 percent of women would prefer to have the same song stuck in their head for a year, 14 percent of men and 11 percent would eat their least favorite food for every meal, and 10 percent of men and 9 percent of women would have an embarrassing video of themselves go viral, among other unsavory options.
