You need to switch. Depending on the size of your agency... You are way underpaid. By at least $5-10k. You don't need to tell new employers what you're making. Focus any conversations on how much you want and why you are worth it.

If you’re in Boston you’re like 40k underpaid. Jump agencies as soon as you can.

You'll catch up, find another agency and get fair market compensation. Even at your current place they probably have a cap on your raise/promotion

That’s grossly underpaid even in the Midwest

I’m a tax senior 1 (will be a senior 2 in October) and just got an offer with a 26% raise at a large public company on their provision team. There’s also an aspect of FP&A and helping with transactions so not strictly tax. All seems super interesting and the team seems great. I really like my EY team and my counselor has talked to me about an early manager promo next year but have never intended to be a PA lifer. Any reason I shouldn’t take it?
