If it’s uploading forms and the returns spit out there is minimal people involved. Should be all OCR/AI.

This is a service offered to our employees. It’s meant for our assurance people or consultants who don’t have time to do their own taxes. Not really going after Turbo Tax

Lol yeah because I’m sure EY would devote marketing materials to a service solely for its employees. It’s ok, TM1. Every firm has an embarrassing service line.

I’ve pretty much hit a brick wall in my job search. I’ve been on the market for over a year looking to leave my company. Part of my problem is my location (South Florida), where there aren’t many consulting opportunities and industry expects you to take the “Miami discount” even for D+ roles. Does anyone have any leads for someone like myself with a cost optimization/reduction background that do not require relocation? Any constructive and productive thoughts are welcome.

Maybe UX/UI or digital product management or …?? TIA for your insights!
