Taxes can be a bit, well, taxing. However, there’s a little relief for you and your wallet. As the midnight deadline looms on the big day, many restaurants and businesses are offering Tax Day freebies and discounts on Tuesday, April 17, with a few valid before and beyond. (For the day, let’s just say — IRS stands for “I Really Saved!”)
After doing your taxes, you’re probably tired of reading “the fine print”, but make sure to do so on each offer before making the rounds. Some of the offers require a coupon or have time restrictions.
Others are on-going deals that just happen to fall on the same day. The promos are valid at participating locations and limited to one per person, while supplies last.
