And while filing taxes involves a lot of hard work and stress, it also means that some of us will be getting some money back from the government. But regardless of whether you're expecting a check from Uncle Sam, there’s no better way to celebrate checking taxes off your to-do list than with some good old-fashioned deals.
Ahead is a list of discounts, freebies, and other steals that you can enjoy on or around Tax Day. But remember: Since some of these deals may not be offered at every location or franchise, it’s a good idea to call ahead and make sure your local stores will honor these promotions.
