Here Are All The Tax Day Deals To Soften The Sting Of Paying The Government Your Hard-Earned Money


Tax Day is TODAY. Some of us lucky chumps—myself included—have been giving the federal government an interest-free loan this past year and we’ve already received our refunds. But for many, today is the day you have to finally surrender the money the government says you owe them. It’s a tough thing to do, but fret not! Many businesses have people like you in mind, and are offering Free and/or Reduced-Price Things to at least balance out the awfulness of paying taxes.
