Recently I learned something. I learned that if you're someone who gets a return on your taxes every year, you probably filed back in January. If you're someone who doesn't get money back--or OWES money--you are probably waiting till the last minute to file (why give Uncle Sam his money any sooner than you have to, amirite?)
My husband and I fall into the second category. We filed our taxes over the weekend (and wrote a check to the IRS), and are definitely feeling the pain. So for those of you who, like us, had to part with more of your hard-earned money (or if you, also like us, just enjoy a good deal wherever you can get it), here's a list of places offering Tax Day discounts and freebies today (Tuesday):
