@tax associate damn—nice. I admittedly don’t know anything about SALT. I am working out of a state with no income tax, though, so I knew I’d be fine 😇. My one question is: my firm is still taking out NY/NYC taxes from my paycheck... will I be able to get refunded on any of that?

I have a large law associate friend who is successfully living and working in the Dominican Republic. Eastern timezone, lower cost of living (school for his kid, housing, transport). There are a couple of Caribbean countries like Barbados offering remote work visas for up to 12 months
