Can someone explain the tax benefits of an HSA to me like I’m five? Everyone seems to be on the same page with these and as a accountant I’m embarrassed I don’t get it

Currently an A3 in assurance. I have two job offers: senior financial analyst (FP&A role) and senior accountant. Similar pay (a little over 40% raise), similar benefits. Will taking one of the offers limit me to just those types of roles going forward or would there still be an opportunity to do the other later on?

Should post-tax 401k contributions show up on my W2? (I only did post-tax contributions, and got pre-tax gains) My accountant says yes, but my company’s payroll team says no. Any advice much appreciated.

My programmer wife and I are about to reach 250k/y household income. How do we find a good personal accountant to help us save some money in taxes? We already have a 401k and IRA accounts and no home or children. I feel TurboTax might not be our best option anymore. Advice?

Applied for a government job as an accountant today. Base pay is 40% higher than what I’m making now as an A3, assurance, LCOL. As a matter of fact, base pay is higher than my total comp at PwC (that’s base plus bonus and the value of all benefits). Are government jobs competitive to get into?

Advice needed: looking to leave public accounting and tax for good. I have two offers between a financial analyst and an accountant role. Based on your experience, which of the two has the best/better exit opportunities (should I decide to pursue the finance realm or something else) and better work life balance? The bigger pay as an analyst is tempting, but the company benefits are meh.

Anyone familiar with salary in orange county (SoCal) and LA/El Segundo area? Interviewed for a senior accountant role in a public health care industry in Irvine, but their maximum pay is 85K. I thought Irvine should have pretty good pay too but this surprises me. Even a private Healthcare company in El Segundo pays more than that for the same role but with even lesser experience and easier job duties...

Is this salary too low? I'm @ final interview for senior accountant and job posting said $60-65k. Before you say it's too low right away, my experience is on a low end of this of this role. Just 1 year auditer @ national top 10, 6 months intern at same firm, 1 year accounting intern at local private firm, and 2 years doing AP clerk. I'm a licensed CPA and in MCOL. I really want this title for growth but don't want to get stiffed. It's a large corp w/ great benefits.

Considering 2 industry job offers - #1 is a mid-size software company, $70k + $5k signing bonus. #2 is a mid-size fintech company, $83k. I've been wanting to work for #1 and I like the industry and people better, but am having trouble looking past the pay. For context, I'm a senior 1 making $73k base. Both roles are standard GL accountant roles, and benefits are similar. Would you take a pay cut for a company you wanted to work for?

Hi! Relatively new here. Current employer doesn’t provide a 401K, and former employer is about to shut down their 401K, so I need to transfer that money elsewhere. Any advice as to - where to transfer it, and how best to keep max saving for retirement? My tax accountant suggested doing a 401K via an LLC since a typical IRA has too low a limit. Any advice or suggestions?
