If you’re owed a refund, nothing beats filing your taxes and waiting for that refund. During the 10 days you’re waiting for your deposit, you’ll likely think of several things you can do with the extra money. What a nice problem to have, especially if you have a few thousand dollars coming back to you.
However, for many other Americans, April 15th is a chaotic, stressful day rushing to file their taxes on time. Many wait until the last minute because it’s hard to part with their money, especially if they owe several thousand dollars.
Whether you got a refund or owe money, many businesses want to try to add a little joy to your day by offering tax day discounts and freebies. (Of course, this also helps their business as well.)
Take advantage of some of these freebies to eat for free all day!
