This year, Tax Day falls on April 18. If you weren't aware of the three-day extension, congrats! You just got some more time.

If you already knew about it, we still have some good news. While filing taxes doesn't exactly fill us with joy, companies and restaurants across the U.S. are offering Tax Day deals to take a little bit of the pain out of the occasion. From free burgers to desserts, these deals are there to say, "We know being an adult sucks. Now, here, have some tequila."

Plus, with all that free stuff, you can save even more money while you wait for your tax refund.
