WSJ Tax Guru to Retire

Tom Herman, The Wall Street Journal’s legendary tax guru, is calling it quits. In a memo to colleagues, Herman—after more than 40 years one of the longest-serving reporters in the paper’s history—writes that he leaves “with enormous respect and affection for the best team in journalism… As a friend once said, it’s not what you do but who you do it with. On that score, I am truly blessed.” Herman’s last column for The Journal after 40 years will be, appriopriately, Tax Day, April 15, though he plans to keep writing occasionally.
