Nobody likes to have to write a check out to Uncle Sam, but I actually have some good news on this Tax Day.

Just like the old saying, There's two things in life that are guaranteed, death and taxes. So if your reading this now looks like your breathing, and the only other guarantee is taxes, and  your probably cursing Uncle Sam cause your sending him a nice chunk of change.

Now it's not all bad. In honor of Tax Day 2017 there are some local merchants that are offering tax day specials and in some cases even free stuff.

According to forbes.com, here's a list of five local places who are doing something nice for you.
