Do you necessarily have to declare when you move away from your home office? E.g based in NYC but then you go move 2 hours away. Assuming you don't need to go to your home office often

Yes. That is usually fine, but two areas where you can get caught: 1) you locate near an airport that is much more expensive and project partners get pissed, and 2) if you have to go to your home office (i.e. Meetings, trainings, etc) you have to foot the bill

Not necessarily but if they have you working an hour and a half in the opposite direction and you want to hotel then you'll have to say something

Interesting. I think NYC is special bc someone based out of there is more likely to find projects there as opposed to chi, atl, Dallas, etc

Yes. Definitely true.

OP. Depends on your practice and skills. I know of many NY folks (all KPMG of course) who are traveling to the cities you listed and have done 6-8 month engagements on the west coast

It can impact taxes. If you can claim NJ tax rate, do it. Nj tax is much lower than ny.

Thanks for starting this bowl. One of the things I find challenging is making small talk with coworkers about holiday plans etc, when you’re forced to explain that you’re not spending holidays with your family. They then launch into some “well-meaning” advice about life being too short and me only having one family. It’s hard to resist the urge to point out that this was not a decision I took lightly, and that they are severely out of turn. I’m tired of smiling and nodding 😒
