Mate. I know tax managers 5-6 years out of big 4 making 150k+ in industry. Tax is the thing that no one except people that are in tax understand. I’ve heard transfer pricing, international tax etc. is where the money is at.

OP- imo I don’t think it matters that much. I’ve seen people on tax do really well. For example, controlller on my current job makes 250k pre stock comp and she never went big 4. Went straight to industry and just hopped around, found a place she liked and stayed there for 8+ years. I don’t think I would take a pay cut in your position. Try to find a tax manager job in industry that gives you at least a bit of a raise and work your way up if you’re content with doing tax.

Depends on the smaller metro. If by "smaller" you mean an area with a population of 300,000 people, then yeah, you might need to take a pay cute or at least not expect anything more than what you make right now.

Yeah, our metro is only about 300K. We have 500K metros 1.5-2 hours away, but truly major metros (millions) are 4-6 hours out. It’s why I’ve started (finally) looking at remote positions too
