Tax Day can be about cashing in as much as paying out. Regardless of whether you owe money or are getting a refund, some businesses are marking the day tax returns are due with deals and freebies.
This year's tax relief include free treats, free paper shredding, meal deals along with a great way to eliminate the stress of filing at the last minute — free massages. Exemptions may apply but proof you’ve submitted taxes is not required.
Some deals start early and extend past Tuesday.
