PwC Tax Directors

Do you truly "leverage”? I consider most staff time as learning hours - they are so ineffective, not “coachable”, and unmotivated. Have to eat the leftovers all day long. Hoping AI solves problem...

Agree. It only appears things are leveraged because I can spend 1 hour teaching someone, they go charge 6 hours “working on it”, and I spend 1 hour fixing it so it’s ready for partner. That gives me 75% leverage

Also...I feel directors often “pretend” to leverage for perception sake but in reality it’s usually not effective in this environment. The reality is that every associate/senior that I have trained leaves eventually, becomes valuable in the sense that everyone wants their time, or is downright unreliable. In the end, I’m often more effective using our offshore centers. Not sure if this will fly at partner, but I do notice a good amount of partners that operate this way

Traveling 🐠 using EY for tax filing. Has anyone used the “adequacy review” offered to review if you were disadvantaged by working out of state and to request a true up? I incurred personal capital gains that are being charged by states I worked in but my home state has 0 income taxes, so I’m thinking this should be covered. Wondering if anyone has been successful in the review and can share experiences. $250 fee to initiate the review, reimbursable if they find money owed to you.

Help: Hey anyone successfully lost antidepressants weight? I got on mirtazapine right before the quarantine. I started to put on weight fast. At first I was happy because I was underweight (105lbs) but then the weight kept growing out of control. At my heaviest point I was about 140lbs, and 4 more pounds would put me in the overweight bucket. I stopped the meds 6 weeks ago and now 127lbs. I want to go down to 118lbs. I’ve been thin my entire life so I don’t have any experience in losing weight
