With April 15th just hours away, lots of businesses are offering freebies to customers as Tax Day relief.

Free dinner. Got a song in your heart? Perform a complete song between 5 p.m. and 7 p.m. local time on the live music stage at one of 40 Hard Rock Cafes (there's one in Tampa and one in Orlando) on Tax Day — and you've just sung your way into a free entree. The chain expects to give away "thousands" of entrees valued at up to $14.95 each, says John Galloway, chief marketing officer.

Free cookies. For those with a bitter taste after filing their taxes, Great American Cookies has a sweet reward — a freebie chocolate chip cookie. OK, the limit is one per person. But no purchase is required, notes Vice President David Kaiser, "nor proof of completed taxes."

Free shredding.

    For those with super-secret tax documents to shred, folks who print special Office Depot coupons can shred up to 5 pounds of papers between now and April 29.

Free fries.

      Arby's will hand out snack-sized curly fries free on April 15 for guests with coupons from Arbys.com or Arby's social channels. But you won't be able to print the coupons until April 14.

Cinnabon — 2 Free Cinnabon Bites (6-8pm)

Sonic Drive In — Half-price fountain drinks & slushies all day.

Sonny's BBQ — Irresistible Rib Special (half-price rib platter.)

Wawa — free coffee on April 16 (for 50th anniversary.)
