No taxes on sales in a tax advantaged account

Just watch out for frequent trading violations. I think a lot of the 401k funds don’t want trading and you are not supposed to buy a fund if you just sold within 30 days. No taxes and you really shouldn’t be messing with 401k investments often anyway. Contributions don’t count.

I don't think that most 401ks allow for you to do this while you are still employed.

What EY1 said. Thanks

I’m curious to hear from people at other firms what is offered in terms of part time work or alternative work options for people that don’t really care about making partner and might want to work part time. I just had my second child and want to ask to come back from maternity leave on a part time basis but our firm doesn’t seem to have anything in place right now. If your firm offers this, what’s the billable requirement, how much of a pay cut is it, and do you still get benefits? Thanks!

Hi, I have been in the business where I am for over 15 years. Even after I became a MD, there’s always few who undermines my skill sets and knowledge. Similar to the other posts I’m tired of this (whack a mole game, squid game) and I still have 3 years prior to vest my pension. I’m debating losing my sanity vs. losing good pension. To be honest unless I can move laterally to another role, I’m bored with what I’m doing right now.
