LOS ANGELES (KTLA) — Procrastinators, your time is up! Monday is the deadline for filing annual income taxes with the IRS.
The agency says 97 million taxpayers had already submitted their tax forms by the first of the month.
About 90 percent of the returns were done electronically, and the average refund is $2,755 — down about $40 from last year.
If you owe taxes this year but you’re not ready to file, you’ll need to pay at least 90 percent of the amount due when you apply for an extension to avoid any late fees.
Meantime, some companies are giving away freebies on Monday to make tax day a little less painful.
You can get a free black and white copy of your tax return from Office Depot, up to 25 pages.
Concessions stands at AMC Theaters are giving away free small orders of popcorn.
Arby’s is offering a free order of curly fries or potato cakes with the linked coupon. And Chili’s is offering a free appetizer or dessert with an entree purchase.
Cinnabon is also giving out sweet treats. Between 6 and 8 p.m., you can get two free Cinnabon bites at participating locations.
