 This year, Federal taxes are due today thanks to the 15th being on a Saturday and the Washington DC holiday of Emancipation Day closing the nation’s capital Monday. But for nearly half of Americans, the tax deadline means little.  Approximately 45% of Americans pay no federal taxes at all and generally get a refund of overpaid taxes to uncle Sam. Although we still feel pain in paying taxes, Florida isn't as bad at 21 other states as it ranks 22nd overall in the amount personal, payroll and estate taxes owed to the Federal government, according to the IRS. But tax day does have it's benefits, free and discounted items. For instance, Bob Evans restaurants are offering 30% off your entire bill today (with coupon [CLICK HERE]). Beef O'Brady's is offering 15% off today only without a coupon (just ask to see if they’re participating), Sonic Drive In is offering half off single patty cheeseburgers (remember to ask for it before ordering [CLICK HERE]), Bonefish is offering free Bang Bag Shrimp, McDonald's usually offers Tax Day deals and vary at lcoation (ask about them before ordering), Cinnabon is offering 2 free Classic Bites to each customer (no coupon needed), World of Beer is offering a free beer and Office Depot and Staples is offering free shredding (5lb at Office Depot & 2lb at Staples with coupon [CLICK HERE]). As with all these deals, they are only valid at participating locations.  Please check before assuming all of these Tax Day freebies are being honored locally.
