Burgers, shaved ice and cheap hotel stays: Tax Day specialsApril 09th 2016
Whether you're a taxpayer due an income tax refund this year or a filer waiting for the very last second to send the government a check, there are some money-saving, free and entertaining Tax Day rewards available.
Because of Washington, D.C.'s observance of Emancipation Day, which falls on April 15 this year, the IRS is deferring to the legal holiday. That means taxes aren't due until April 18.
The extra filing days give taxpayers time to find a few more deductions and, for those getting what the IRS reports as the average $2,800 refund, more time to plan their splurges. And if you're in need of a thrifty reward or a full-blown vacation, everything from cookies to burgers and cheap hotel stays are on offer.
