WASHINGTON D.C. -- Last minute tax filers only have until midnight Wednesday to file your taxes, or apply for an extension.

The Internal Revenue Service says two out of three taxpayers have already filed their 2014 return. That's just over 99 million returns processed.

Of those, 77 million refunds have been issued, averaging more than $2,800.

If you haven't filed, don't panic -- you can still get it done by midnight or file for an extension at irs.gov, search for form 4868.

Retailers are also offering up tax day freebies:

- Boston Market: buy one individual meal, get a second one free
