These Tax Day Freebies and "1040" Deals Are a Sweet Treat
Check out the tax day freebies available near you. From BOGO deals to other discounts, these tax day specials take the sting out of filing taxes.
The deadline to file your taxes has finally arrived. Tuesday, April 18, 2023, is Tax Day. Although the default deadline is April 15, since that was on a weekend and April 17 was Emancipation Day, Americans had a few extra days to get their 2022 taxes submitted. If you're looking for a way to celebrate or ease the pain, try these Tax Day freebies and deals near you.
A number of food retailers have announced appealing discounts and freebies in honor of tax day. Several use a play on the numbers "1040" as a nod to IRS Form 1040, which the majority of Americans use to file their taxes.
1. BJ's Restaurant & Brewhouse has a Tax Day discount code.
For any purchase of at least $40 on tax day, customers at BJ's Restaurant & Brewhouse can get $10 off their order. This deal applies to both take-out and delivery orders, but be sure to include the code 10OFF40. This doesn't apply to dining in the restaurant.
2. Boston Market has a $10.40 Tax Day deal.
Boston Market customers can get a great deal on a family meal for April 18 only. Order a half-chicken individual meal with two sides and cornbread, plus a regular fountain drink and a cookie, all for $10.40. (Again, the restaurant is using tax form 1040 for inspiration!)
