Tax Bowl

I’m a senior associate in SALT, licensed CPA, but I’m getting bored of tax and I think I’d like to try my hand at something else, less related to tax . What are exit opportunities that are available?

How far do you want to pivot from tax? I’ve worked with people that went to marketing and others that did financial analyst roles. What are you thinking? In general, the harder the pivot, the less you’ll get paid at that new positiob

We have an Indirect tax automation group in Houston. Very small but it’s an opportunity similar to the above post

If you’re in SALT, definitely worth looking at indirect tax automation. With the Wayfair case, so many opportunities in indirect tax to help automate, implement third party taxability engines, process review, etc. There’s also opportunities in credits and incentives which is different than income tax.

What type of work are you doing in salt? There is a ton of variety within the area that you could do too (speaking as a 14 year salt person)

I'm currently in a similar situation. I recently started exploring becoming an actuary. Gonna be a lot of work, but definitely seems much more interesting than tax.

Our company usually does performance evaluations in June of each year. Our pay philosophy is not clear. We usually give a COLA in January each year, somewhere around 2% and if an employee performed well, they get above the 2%. I have suggested we change our process to have a clear pay philosophy with increases tied to performance, with goals tied to overall goals of the organization. What is your process? Are you doing performance evals during COVID?
