RH salary guide is good, make sure to use your zip code and add in the CPA and masters degree increases if applicable.

I'd just start at the very high end of the range, and tell them this is what you believe the market rate is for someone with your experience, education, expertise in the market right now.

Be prepared to accept less, but have a floor in your mind of the lowest you will take, and ask them to justify the lower number (market research, information they have internally, etc if they're offering you much less than you ask for).

Also, ask about health insurance (details on the deductible, h.s.a. contributions if any, and the premiums $ and %), 401k contribution, and days off. Try to negotiate more benefits or work from home or whatever you want if they are telling you a low number that would otherwise make the job not worth it.

One time I took $2k base below what I wanted because I was assured a 40 hour work week, and the 401k contribution (match and safe harbor) was 12%. It was worth it.

Interview with multiple places. Letting one know you have a competing offer will make the market competitive for you. Not sure if helpful if you are too late in the game

Have a good idea of comp for comparable positions and set that as your target. Be prepared to explain how you are worth that to the company, through savings, plans, efficiencies you will bring to the organization.

But could you give a certain example how you negotiate? #real life:)

Look at the Robert half salary guide. I’ve found it to be very accurate. That will let you determine if they’re low balling you. I’d say ask for 5% more than what the salary guide states
