Whether you are a procrastinator still digging out your W-2 forms or an early bird whose refund check is burning a hole in your pocket, Travelocity(R) has the cure for the Tax Day Blues: a special one day sale on already great Last Minute Deals to select tax-free destinations in the United States and abroad.

From now until 11:59 p.m. Pacific Daylight Time tonight, Travelocity shoppers booking a Last Minute Deal to select international tax havens or U.S. states that do not impose either a state income tax or local sales taxes will enjoy an additional 15 percent off on their trip. To redeem the 15 percent discount travelers simply type Tax_Day into the promotional code field on the billing page during the check out process. The discount will then be automatically deducted from the final price.

"It's hard to imagine anyone who enjoys doing their taxes," said Jennifer Gibson, director of Last Minute Deals for Travelocity. "So we thought it would be fun to both highlight the destinations we offer via Last Minute Deals that are tax havens in one way or another and give our shoppers either a way to enjoy their refunds or at the very least a few minutes to daydream about where else they'd like to be today."
