Preparing tax returns is never fun, but some businesses are helping to ease the pain by offering freebies and special deals on Tax Day, which this year is April 17 (today).

Craving a pizza, sub or cold margarita to celebrate completing your return? You can find that and more in the list below. Many happy returns!

(Word to wise bargain hunters: Be sure to call the business first, to confirm that they are participating.)

JW's, 705 Washington Ave., Grand Haven, is celebrating Tax Day by offering 50 percent off bottles of wine all day today.
