Tax Day is America’s least favorite day. There is a looming deadline, so many numbers it will make your head spin, and form after form requiring painstaking detail. Not to mention how bad the day can get for those who owe the government money.
However there is a bright side to Tax Day. In recent years mid-April has also developed a reputation as a season of giveaways and special deals. Retailers, restaurants and even office supply stores want to help ease the ordeal and provide a little relief.
In fact, Tax Day is probably the most underrated freebie day of the year, and that is definitely a reason to celebrate!
