The Best Tax Day Meal Deals

The Best Tax Day Meal Deals :: Mint.com/blog

There’s not much that can make the pain of tax season less taxing, but restaurants sure try.

Come April 15 (tomorrow!), once your return is filed and the check in the mail to Uncle Sam, be on the lookout for tax-themed freebies and deals.

Be on the lookout for more offers from both national chains and local spots as tax day approaches—many restaurants announce their deals at the last-minute.

For now, add these to your list of possibilities:
