There is an old saying that starts off like this, “There are two things in this life no human being can avoid”.
Not surprisingly, taxes happen to be one of those things. No matter what you do or who you are, you have to report your taxes, file the paperwork that comes along with it, pay the government once they determine you did not pay enough or you are on the flipside of that coin, find out you are getting some money back.
Whatever your particular case may be, Tax Day is hardly fun for anyone. We acknowledge that and the fact that the stress of the day can weigh on your energy physically and mentally.
This is why we think it is so smart that several companies in the US each year do their best to give back and provide relief for hard-working taxpayers.
We researched high and low and found some of the best freebies and deals you can take advantage of this year.
Note: Even during our research, it was hard to find where some of these companies had all the freebies hidden. Your best bet therefore for finding out the best deals or freebies the last day taxes are due is to:
- Sign up for company e-mail lists/e-Clubs
- Follow their most active social media accounts to get the scoop on all the freebies and deals OR
- Reach out to companies via social media to find out what they have in store as far as specials, deals or freebies go.
