  • Tax Day 2020 generally isn’t thought of as a happy day, but we’ve got some news that might help take the edge off.
  • Now that you’re done filing your taxes and paying any money that you might owe the federal or state governments, it’s time to check out all the great freebies and discounts being offered by restaurant chains for Tax Day 2020.

Tax Day is generally a pretty big bummer, especially because there’s no way to win. If you owe money to the federal government or to your state, you’re bummed that you have to cut a check. And if you’re due a tax refund, that’s also bad news. Getting a chunk of cash might seem like a good thing, but it actually means that you overpaid your taxes last year. In other words, the government has been making easy money by earning interest on your overpayment, interest that you should’ve been earning by keeping that money in a bank account or investing it.

Whatever the case, we’ve got a great way for you to forget about all the pain brought about by taxes and enjoy yourself a bit instead. Why not take advantage of some of the great deals that restaurants across the US are offering for Tax Day 2020? rounded up all the hottest freebies and discounts from nationwide restaurant chains this year, and you’ll find them all listed down below.
