9 Food Deals And Steals To Take Advantage Of On Tax Day

Time to head to McDonald's, stat!

Doing your taxes is pretty -- well, taxing. No one likes to fill out those endless annoying forms and even the people working at the IRS don't really like their jobs. So to celebrate April 15, officially known as "Tax Day," a lot of places are giving away free or discounted food in an attempt to take the sting out of a day dedicated to paperwork and paying large sums of money.

To make things a little bit easier, we've compiled the 10 best Tax Day deals to help you eat your cares away!

1. McDonald's

Buy one Big Mac or Quarter Pounder and get the next one for only one cent at select locations. (And, while it's not a Tax Day deal, it's worth noting that if you're near certain Northeastern Pennsylvania locations, you can trade in a Taco Bell breakfast receipt for a free Egg McMuffin until April 17.)

2. Boston Market
