Finally done filling out that stack of confusing tax forms (and possibly cutting a check to Uncle Sam)? It's not too late to unwind and recoup a few bucks by taking advantage of these Tax Day freebies.

Some of them are available at brick-and-mortar chain stores and restaurants where you can commiserate with fellow tax payers. Or if you can't bear to leave the house, there are plenty of Tax Day offers available online as well.

In person:

Subway is offering free cookies while supplies last.

Get a free brewed coffee at Starbucks if you bring your own reusable mug. (The promotion was meant to be linked to Earth Day next week and not Tax Day, but whatever.)

Looking for a full meal? McCormick & Schmick's and is offering $10.40 specials and $10.40 gift certificates (while supplies last) at the bar only and P.F. Chang's will give you 15 percent off the bill, excluding alcohol. Both promotions are good all day.

Grab a coupon online first, then head out to Taco Del Mar for a free taco. The chain has locations nationwide, but is concentrated on the West Coast.

At Cinnabon, stop by from 6-8 p.m. to get two free mini cupcakes.

Whole Foods will pick up the tax on your entire purchase. But the offer is only good in Tennessee, Alabama, North Carolina and South Carolina.

This printable coupon gets you a second individual meal for free when you buy one at Boston Market. Good through April 18.

Promoting a new recipe, Jack in the Box is giving away free small orders of fries. But don't head for the door just yet. The offer is for Friday, April 16.

Online: offers 10.4 percent off online orders all day. The offer can be combined with a 20 percent discount on any single item (use coupon code "TWENTY"). says it's giving an extra 5 percent off toys and electronics and 10 percent off almost everything else.
