You got all your forms and receipts together to tackle your taxes.
Did you file everything yet in or are you still procrastinating?
If you are really one of those last minute folks then you better make sure your return is in either electronically by day’s end or post-marked by the end of the day on April 15th (expect the post office to be crowded).
To help everyone get over the tax-day malaise, there are a number of stores that are offering up free tax day snacks, giveaways, and deals.
These companies are helping ease your tax woes:
Boston Market – Get one individual meal and get another one free. (Boston Market).
Bruegger’s Bagels – Get a special Bakers Dozen 1040 deal for $10.40. Join their email list to get the coupon. (Bruegger’s Bagels)
Great American Cookies – They are offering up a deal the Cookie Monster would love: one free regular sugar cookie on tax day. (Great American Cookies.)
Olive Garden – Save $6 on dinner for two through April 19th. Join their list for the coupon. (Olive Garden)
Schlotzky’s – Get one The Original® small sandwich free with the purchase of chips and a 32oz. drink. (Schlotzky’s)
Staples – Have some paper you need to shred? Staples has an offer for free five pounds of shredding until May 2nd (and some other nice coupons as well). (Staples) Remember to hold onto important tax documents for at least three years.
Of course, if you haven’t done your taxes yet you better hurry!
If you don’t think you will be able to finish preparing your taxes on time then you have the option to file for a tax extension. Just make sure you pay what you think you will if you expect to have to pay taxes.
Oh, and if you haven’t filed yet then H&R Block might be a great option for you. Take a look at our review.
