It's Tax Day, which can mean frustration, relief — or panic, for the roughly 40 million Americans who wait until the last minute to file their returns.

If you have yet to file, head over to the IRS website to finish the deed or ask for an extension. But once filing's behind you (or not), you can celebrate by going after a few freebies or discounts that companies have historically offered around tax season.

Read on for the dining and shopping deals on tap for this year's tax season — and how to get them.
