The Geography of Tax Day Freebies

Tax Day: A day each year that most anticipate as one of stress and strain and pocketbooks being relieved of funds.  What can offset such feelings of doom and despair?  How about a massage or a scoop of ice cream or free copies of your tax return?  

Let’s take a look at some Tax Day deals that are sure to have you grinning from ear-to-ear.


What better way to perk up than a nice, sugar-filled snack?  Maggie Moo’s Ice Cream is serving up three-ounce sundaes from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m.  The ice creamery is owned by Global Franchise Group, LLC, which is headquartered in Fulton County, Georgia. Stores can be found in 43 states, Puerto Rico, and Singapore.  If you can’t find a Maggie Moo’s near you, look for a Cinnabon (all locations in the U.S. are mapped above). The pastry providers are offering free bites of yummy cinnamon goodness on Tax Day!

Tax deal

I try not to be a last-minute person, but I will admit that I only
mailed my Nebraska Tax Return this morning. Copying documents is not
cheap, so Office Depot is offering free copying (there is a 25
pages-per-person limit).  The largest concentration of Office Depot
stores is located in California, Texas, and Florida (not surprising
given that these are the most populous U.S. states), but the company has
more than 1,100 stores across the U.S. and Canada.

Stress Reliever

Nothing makes me relax more than a nice massage courtesy of my sister.
But, since I am not willing to offer her services to just anyone, I
direct your attention to a company called Hydromassage. They are
providing free, 10-minute massages all day long!  For a list of
participating stores, click here.  Company headquarters are in
Clearwater, Florida but they have stores in all 50 states.

I hope these Tax Day freebies make Tax Day 2011 a little less ‘taxing’
for you!  Be sure to check out local media sources for mentions of other
local Tax Day deals!
