Stockmarket is a pop up shopping experience set for May 2 in downtown Stockton. It will feature artisan products as well as curated and vintage items all presented by vendors from the region.

“It will be a fun destination for people to come down to. There’ll be music. There’ll be drinks,” said Katie Macrae, who, with her partner Amy Sieffert, organized the event.

Tax tips: What you need to know before April 15

One tax deadline is behind us, and now it is time to file those annoyingly ridiculous personal income tax returns. Here are some friendly reminders before you sign that tax return under penalties of perjury.

The deadline to file your personal income tax return this year is Wednesday, April 15. If you cannot meet that deadline, you’ll have to file for an extension and make a good faith estimate of the tax you will owe.

Failure to make the estimated tax payment with your extension can render your extension void. Failure to file penalties are equal to 5 percent per month, capped at 25 percent of the tax due.
