Tax Day 2011 is Monday April 18, in case you hadn’t noticed. So you’ve survived your IRS forms, or maybe are still struggling through them?  We’ve got tax relief in the form of Tax Day treats to sweeten the deal, valid on various days over tax weekend:

  • Arby’s Free Curly Fryday on April 15 – one free value curly fries per person using the coupon at the link, to kick off Tax Weekend.
  • Hinkle Family Fun Center on April 15 – Pay $15 for two hours of unlimited play on main attractions ( paintball and game room credits are extra). Ask for the Tax Day Special.
  • Two Free Cinnabon Bites  on April 18 – two freebies per person between 6 pm and 8 pm – note those are both PM times, it’s an evening offer – at participating mall-based Cinnabon bakeries.
  • 15% off all P.F Chang’s food purchases on April 18.  Dine in or take out. Not valid on beverages or happy hour food but otherwise just turn up with a taxing appetite.  (If you’re a Warrior Card member, you don’t get 10% off on top of that – just the same 15% as everyone else!)
  • Free HydroMassage for a little post-tax relaxation, from April 14 –  18. Click New Mexico on the map to see participating Albuquerque locations.  You must call ahead to schedule,  and print the free massage coupon to take with you.
  • Boofy’s Best for Pets Pays Your Sales Tax on April 18. In response to our Facebook Page request, they told us that “Making better nutrition choices for your pet shouldn’t be taxing, so on April 18 we’ll cover the sales tax for all purchases made at Boofy’s.” Find ’em at 8201 Golf Course RD NW.
  • Buffalo Exchange Dollar Day Sale on April 16. The sale on Saturday is not EXACTLY a tax day deal, it’s actually an Earth Day benefit for The Humane Society of the United States. But hey, it happens over tax weekend, so we’re throwing it in. Proceeds from the $1 clothing sale goes to the nation’s largest animal protection organization.   

If you’re still completing tax returns:

  • Office Depot 25 Free Copies of your tax returns through April 15. Print out the PDF coupon, although I’m not sure who needs 25 copies. That said, Mr Cheap and I do print out quite a few between us – just so we’ve got all the more to lose :-)
  • Tax Help New Mexico’s Midnight Madness on April 18. Certified tax preparers help tax payers file on time and online, from 8:30 am through midnight! It’s a free service for those with household income of $50K or less, or those aged 65+. At CNM Main Campus.
  • Free TurboTax edition online if you’re filing 1040EZ forms and simpler federal tax returns.  The program asks plain language questions to help complete the forms, calculate the return, and submit to the feds by free Efile or hard copy.  The program is suitable for forms including 1040EZ, 1040A, and 1040, but doesn’t cover tax schedules C, D, E, and F. TurboTax Free edition is only for federal tax returns, not state returns.

If you hear of any other local Tax Day deals – let us know!

Note: As always, not all locations may be participating in all deals – call ahead to be sure.
