The IRS pushed back the tax filing deadline by a month to May 17 instead of April 15 as the agency grapples with staffing issues and outdated systems at a time when it’s also implementing sweeping tax code changes from the COVID-19 relief packages. In 2020, the deadline was extended to July 15.
Tax Day used to be one of the biggest freebie and deal days of the year before the coronavirus pandemic. Some restaurants would mark the tax return deadline with specials that often drew big crowds. For the second year in a row, the list of Tax Day free food and deals is shorter.
But there are still deductions and tax relief regardless of whether you owe money or are waiting on a delayed tax refund.
Businesses, including Krispy Kreme, White Castle and Office Depot, also have ongoing freebies for vaccinated customers. And Krispy Kreme has a freebie Monday for everyone, no vaccination card required.
