July 15 tax return deadline is right around the corner: What to know

July 15 is the new April 15 for those who still have not filed a tax return. The traditional April income tax deadline was extended this year  for 2019 tax returns, due to the upheaval created by COVID-19.

H&R Block estimates that more than half of its clients who still need to file would receive a refund after they file. And the tax giant is running TV ads this summer highlighting the prospects of a tax refund.

Trump Trolled for Fourth of July Event Performer as Internet Recalls Obama’s Star Power

President Donald Trump is being trolled on Twitter after footage of a man singing a Bruno Mars song at his Fourth of July event at the White House was shared online.

Many of the president’s critics were quick to point out that former President Barack Obama had the real Bruno Mars perform at his Fourth of July party in 2015, calling it “a tale of two presidents.”

“Perfect anology [sic] for the deterioration at the White House: 5 years ago the real Bruno Mars performed at the White House,” one user wrote on Twitter while retweeting the video of Trump’s celebration.
