Tax season is almost over. Monday, April 15, is the last day to file your taxes this year (or get an extension). Whether you filed early and have gotten a refund or are waiting until the last minute to send your tax return and write a check to Uncle Sam, I’m betting you’ll be glad to put taxes behind you for another year.
So why not go out and celebrate your hard work?
We’ve scoured the Internet and found freebies and deals you can take advantage of this weekend or after you get done filing on Monday.
Word to the wise: These deals vary by location, so play it safe and call ahead before you visit. Some locations may not participate.
