Tax Day 2018 is here. We hope that you've figured out how to file taxes—and that you're getting the biggest tax refund possible. (Or, at the very least, we hope you've been able to avoid overpaying to file your taxes.)

But no matter whether you're cutting a check to Uncle Sam or expecting a big refund—or even filing for an tax extension for now—everyone can take advantage of Tax Day freebies and deals available on Tuesday, April 17.

Like previous years, the 2018 Tax Day deals feature an abundance of restaurants with free food and other special discounts as a little pick-me-up on what might be a stressful day. Among the Tax Day deals are free cookies and free breakfast sandwiches, plus discounts on pizza, sandwiches, cheeseburgers, and more.
