Tax Day falls on April 18 this year, giving taxpayers an extra three days to file their returns.
Some local businesses are hoping to provide even more relief by offering freebies and discounts to mark the unofficial holiday.
DEAL ALERT: These stores are closing in Palm Beach County
Typically the federal tax deadline is April 15 — but that’s a Saturday this year. When Tax Day falls on a weekend, the IRS moves pushes the deadline to the following Monday — April 17. However, Emancipation Day — a legal holiday in the District of Columbia — will be observed on April 17, which pushes the nation’s filing deadline to Tuesday, April 18, 2017.
Here’s a list of local businesses that will be offering deals on April 18. This list will be updated throughout the week as new offers are announced:
McDonald’s: Buy one Big Mac or Quarter Pounder with cheese, get on for a penny.
Sonny’s: The BBQ chain will be offering half price Sweet & Smokey or House Dry-Rubbed Rib Dinners (includes two sidekicks and homemade bread.)
Leila Restaurant: Leila Restaurant, a Middle Eastern eatery in downtown West Palm Beach, is offering a free cocktail with any entrée purchase all day on Tax Day.
3800 Ocean: 3800 Ocean, the restaurant at the Palm Beach Marriott Singer Island Beach Resort & Spa, will be offering a number of happy hour specials to mark the unofficial holiday. The Happy Hour menu is available from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.
