Ladies and gentlemen! I am tired. My bed is calling me in early tonight! But before I go in,here’s a great tip for you:
You can get a FREE automatic tax extension. (if you don’t owe)
Use TaxExtension.com is an IRS-approved e-file provider and extend your taxes online in minutes.
With this IRS-sanctioned website, you can be sure that the service will always be free and you won’t be distracted by advertisements for paid products.
If you have been on the ball–now it’s time to celebrate. National chains and local shops throughout the country are giving away food, massages, and even HBO on April 18, this year’s tax deadline. Here’s a few of these tax day deals:
- IHOP: Every day in April–not just Tax Day itself–children age 12 and under eat for free, as long as their parents purchase an adult entree. (One free kid meal per adult entree, between 4 p.m. and 10 p.m.) The kids’ menu features macaroni and cheese, pancakes, cheeseburgers, and other items, and all the meals come in at under 600 calories.
- Also, track your favorite chain’s Twitter and Facebook accounts, because some are likely to announce last-minute giveaways and updates on their freebies. Most national chains, including almost all of the restaurants mentioned above, regularly update their Twitter pages with the latest information on discounts. At least two websites, taxdayfreebies.com and Brad’s Deals, are posting regular updates as retailers announce new offers
- These others I had have ended already for the day. (sorry!)
And don’t let these freebies translate into a shopping spree. Restaurants and retailers aren’t making these offers out of the goodness of their hearts; they hope customers spend more as a result. So while you’re out copying your tax documents or picking up free ice cream, don’t blow your refund at the same time.
