Your guide to the best Tax Day 2023 deals, discounts and freebies

Must read

It’s that time again.

Unless you live in a state that’s been decimated by a natural disaster or plan on filing an extension, the Internal Revenue Service would like its money today.

While we got a bit of an extension this year, thanks to a combination of the 15th falling on a Saturday and a holiday in the District of Columbia yesterday, Tax Day 2023 is here—and it’s a year where refunds will be smaller than last year, if you get one at all.

There is some good news, though: Several restaurants and other businesses will once again offer a variety of freebies and discounts.

Here are a few to keep an eye out for while you’re out an about today:
