Never mind relaxing to The Masters golf tournament. For millions of taxpayers, the next few days will be some of the most stressful of the year, because it's Tax Filing Weekend.
The filing deadline this year is Monday night, April 15.
Fortunately, a number of businesses now offer deals and freebies to help ease some of the pain, and add some cheer as you struggle to get those forms completed by Monday's deadline.
Some of the best freebies:
-McDonalds will offer a number of freebies, depending on the franchise.
Some McDonald's will give you a free coffee on Tax Day, April 15. Other McDonald's have a buy-one-Big Mac, get a second for one penny sale, on Tax Day.
-Schlotzsky's Deli will give you a free sandwich with a drink purchase Monday, for their Tax Day Bites deal.
-Chili's is offering a free appetizer or desert with purchase of an entree, this weekend. You must bring the printable coupon from their website.
As always, don't waste your money.
Editor's Note - Earlier versions of this story noted a Tax Day special at Chick-fil-A locations. This deal is only available in some markets, and is NOT available in the Kansas City area.
