Tax to FP&A is a very hard jump. I tried as a A2 and every recruiter laughed at me. While not impossible, you’re best bet is to move to a finance associate role at a hedge fund or pe fund where you will get exposure to valuations, forecasting, tax, and fund accounting. Then from there, jump to FP&A
