I'll be renovating my house (gut all existing bathrooms and kitchen, extend house to make room for an extra bathroom). It's currently my primary residence but I likely have to move in early 2022 to another city where I also own a house and then I plan to rent my current residence via Airbnb. What should I consider from a tax perspective? For example, if my current residence becomes an investment property before or when I renovate, does the renovation count as a tax deductible expense?
Have finally gotten past the mindset of wanting to order the most expensive dish just because I can expense it.
I will be joining Google in 2 weeks and want to keep my current Corp number. Does google reimburse for a personal cell or do I have to get a corporate phone ? Also is there a preferred provider in USA?
We all know about EY’s egregious lunch policy that makes no sense. Wanted to hear about other expense policies at other firms! Anyone really like their expense policy? What would you change?

Anyone here invest in index funds? I’m thinking about VTSAX but FXROX has no expense fees so it looks enticing. But I hear most people rave about VTSAX
Has anyone moved from a H/MCOL city to a small town or rural area? Any regrets in regards to career progression, networking, or lack thereof? I'm thinking of making the move this winter in order to cut my housing expense by more than half and to put my daughter in better Catholic school. My employer doesn't care where we live so long as we can get to an airport. I grew up in a small town, so it wouldn't be a shock to me, just worried about how it may affect my career trajectory.
Does your firm reimburse mileage related to driving into the office to work overtime on a weekend? EY does, how about the other firms?
Do you think I could expense a weekly meal delivery service (it’s precooked - just have to microwave it) during busy season? Would be delivered to the office and is cheaper than ordering in.
Gt does GT reimburse for cell phone bill?
When your company and your CSR both reimburse you $100 for the Global Entry program and you make out $100 on top.
Per diem dinner allowance for Orlando at KPMG seems low at $33. That city has become much more expensive especially since it’s essentially a resort town. What do other firms allow?
If I reimburse $X and the company adds $X to my paycheck I’m losing money right? Since I get taxed on the $X in the paycheck and end up with less then I spent
Accenture Managers & up: does Accenture pay a new phone + plan? Or do they just reimburse the cost of your personal plan. Turning in my one and only phone to D and trying to decide if I need to buy a new one now or figure out a temporary solution until Accenture sends one in about a month when I start.
Need suggestions and your views. Currently at Manager level in DUSI and just got 33% hike. Currently I am holding an offer from a boutique firm which is offering a much higher executive level and 30% hike over my current salary. But since this firm is pretty small and setting up new operations in India, little hesitant. What do you think fishes ?
Starting at Accenture next week and wondering if there are any options to expense work from home stuff equipment as monitors? Thanks!
Looking for (adaptive, preferably) educational technology for ELA to be used in classrooms as both enrichment for students identified as gifted as well as re-teaching, offering helpful support for students who struggle. Has anyone found anything that does both well? Looking especially for a tool that teachers can get behind and that students enjoy/find easy to use. What do you love? What do you hate? This would be targeted to grades 1-6 primarily, but it needs a high ceiling.
Has anyone jumped from Big 4 Advisory to Tier 1 Consulting firms (e.g. MBB). Was the jump at the same, higher or lower level?
Looking for advice. I am very close to making partner at a national firm (next year), but recently was approached with a SVP role at a private company in my industry. The comp is much higher than what I am making now, and will be comparable for the first few years as partner. I’m very torn because I can see myself doing well in both paths, and there are pros and cons to both. Continued…
I’ve been seeing this a lot more recently and just had to make a thread about it. I refuse to believe that anyone on here has actually been asked to work a 100hr week. People come onto this thread with legitimate questions and concerns and I just see people trying to scare them out of public which inevitably makes it worse for everyone else who sticks around. Even an 80 hour week is debatable and that is the absolute top. Stop trying to be an attention getter. We work, but not 24/7.
I applied for a role and had an initial phone screen with the recruiter, who let me know they would move forward with my application but for the next level down. I’m leaning towards bringing this and comp questions up further down the line in the process but wondering if this is the right approach. I don’t want to waste their and my time if they’re not willing to consider me for the level I applied for.
The market is HOT. Went to see recruiter yesterday and already have 3 interviews scheduled for jobs I would love.

Between PwC, Deloitte, & EY. Which has the best NYC Tax Practice when it comes to comp and promotions?
Informed today that, unless we win some new business in the next 90 days, I’ll be laid off. Thoughts on when I should start to make alternative plans? (Con’t)
I have two contract offers: One is about Data Management/Quality project for 6 months, the pay is 5000£ per month, the other is product data scientist for an early stage startup based in San Francisco for 4 months, the pay is a lot lot less (less than 1000£ per month). Tbh, I am not a big fan of data management, and I totally see myself doing product analytics which is becoming a hot skill in DS field. Is it stupid to turn down the first offer and accept the second one? I would love some advice
