I guess it depends on your perspective. These seem like largely negative signs about the role in general. But if “positive” here means they are getting close to offering you a role that starts immediately with a bunch of team challenges and difficult people - sounds like yes.

I am not from the US and taxes overwhelm me; the first few years I did them with TurboTax and it was fine but then I entered a domestic partnership and had a baby. I also bought a house (that I don’t live in), so I went to H&R Block to give it a try assuming they could advise me on optimizing my return, it seemed that they are completely transactional as the person is just typing numbers in a form. Any recommendations on how to navigate personal taxes with an actual advisor?
