Tax Day Discounts & Freebies

Happy Tax Day! April 15th can be a taxing day for many people (sorry for the pun, couldn’t help myself!), but whether you’ve filed your taxes already or will be in a hurry mess to get to the postal service today, some businesses have some awesome deals to help relieve stress for tax payers.

Here are some of the freebies and discounts on offer for tax season 2010:

  • CINNABON: Get two free bite-sized cupcakes from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Thursday at participating mall locations as part of “Tax Day Bites!” Flavors include Chocolate Passion, 24-Carrot Cake, Vanilla Bliss and Cinnacake Classic.
  • MAGGIEMOO’S: Get one free slice of ice cream pizza — ice cream with red frosting to look like sauce and white chocolate to look like cheese — at participating locations from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. Thursday.
  • DUNKIN DONUTS: Free Dunkin Donuts donut with a purchase of a coffee. This is another great tax day freebie!
  • STARBUCKS: Get free brewed coffee all day Thursday if you bring your own mug, a promotion the cafe chain says is friendly to the environment as well as taxpayers.
  • BOSTON MARKET: For a “last-minute tax break” — one free meal for each one you buy Thursday through Sunday — show this coupon:
  • TACO BELL: Free Taco at Taco Del Mar. You need to go to the Taco Del Mar website and get a printable free Taco coupon for this special tax day offering. Then bring in the coupon on tax day, April 15th and get your free taco.

Bar guests who come in April 15 also receive a $10.40 gift certificate for a later visit. And professional tax preparers, who may have to work right until the midnight deadline Thursday, get their freebie Friday: dessert on the house plus a $10.40 certificate if they show a business card.

Does anyone know of any other discounts or freebies for tax day?

Speaking of taxes, my state taxes of $158 was deposited to my savings account yesterday, so my Emergency Fund is sitting at $4,880. Cha-ching!
