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:
Chick Fil-A will give you a coupon for a free chicken sandwich if you buy one on Tax Day, April 15. There's nothing to bring to the store.
McDonald's will offer a number of freebies, depending on the franchise.
Some McDonald's will give you a free coffee on Tax Day. Other McDonald's have a buy one Big Mac, get a second for one penny sale.
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.
