6 tax tasks to take care of by July 15

Hello July, which according to this year's goofy tax calendar is April.

The long-simmering debate over whether John Wayne’s name is appropriate for Orange County’s airport has boiled up again. In an era when racial injustice is back in the spotlight, the county’s Democratic Party — and others — now want the actor’s name off the facility for offensive remarks made a half-century ago. It became John Wayne Airport in 1979 after the Newport Beach resident’s death. Let me start by saying I think airports and the surrounding tourism industry are best served when a name te...
