Yes, Tax Day can be a last-minute rush to file your taxes. But it also can be a great time to score some free or discounted goods.

This April 18 — that’s right, Tax Day comes a little later this year — stores and restaurants are rolling out deals and freebies to make the stress of tax season a little easier to handle.

From free shredding — spring cleaning, anyone? — to free and discounted food, here are some of the top deals, collected in part by, when they’re available and what you have to do to get them.

• Boston Market: Get a half-chicken individual meal for $10.40. The meal includes two sides, cornbread, a regular fountain beverage and a cookie. This is available only on April 18. Click here to get the offer.

• Buca di Beppo: Get 18 percent off your Tax Day purchase at Buca di Beppo when you present this coupon.

• Chili’s: At participating locations, get $5 Presidente Margaritas now through April 18.

• Hard Rock Café: Get a free Local Legendary Burger if you get onstage and sing for it. Only available April 18.

• Kona Ice: Find your local Kona Ice truck by tweeting your ZIP code to @KonaIce. Trucks across the U.S. will park at post offices, businesses and tax preparation centers to hand out free cups of shaved ice and free Hawaiian leis.

• McDonald’s: McDonald’s is offering its usual Tax Day deal: When you buy one Big Mac or Quarter Pounder at regular price, get another of the same sandwich for a penny.

• National Parks: This deal actually is in celebration of National Park Week, not Tax Day. From April 16-24, get in free to any National Park.

• Office Depot and Office Max: Shred five pounds of paper for free until April 23.

• Sonic: Get a single cheeseburger at half-price on Tax Day.

• Sonny’s BBQ: On April 18, get a sweet and smokey or house dry-rubbed rib dinner with two sides and bread for half-price.

• Staples: Shred up to five pounds of documents and papers for free on Tax Day.

• Tony Roma’s: Join the Tony Roma’s email club now and get a coupon emailed to you that’s good for a free dessert through April 29. If you’re not an email club member but still chow down at Tony Roma’s on Tax Day, you’ll receive the same coupon to use later.

• World of Beer: Get a free select draught on April 18. Offers and beer variety vary. Find a local World of Beer location for more details.
