Ahh, tax day. If you are getting a refund, you have probably already filed, but if you will owe money come tax day, you may have procrastinated and not filed until as close to the deadline as possible. Well, guess what? Time is up. If you don’t want to face extensions and late fees, Tuesday night at midnight is as long as you can procrastinate.

Whether you are getting a refund and want to celebrate or owe money and want to console yourself, many companies want to take the pain out of tax day with tax day freebies. Here are some places to reap the rewards:

Hey that’s cool there are all those freebies and discounts on tax day! I’ve been traveling like a mad woman lately so I missed out on these but I’m glad to have all my taxes done. It’s nice to know there are some positive things associated with tax day and I applaud those companies for them! 🙂 -Sydney

If I took advantage of all of these, I’d probably die 🙂

Cool list.
