Though you probably don’t want to celebrate Tax Day, many marketers are hoping to turn that around.
The Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration reported that the Internal Revenue Service received more than 137.3 million tax returns in 2015—and nearly 88 percent of them were filed online. That spells out a huge marketing opportunity for those wishing to grab consumers’ attention (and a few dollars).
Tax Day is April 18 this year, instead of the usual April 15. Office Depot’s online team might have overlooked that:
