Random question about social security: if I switch jobs mid year and had already reached the max contribution to social security in my prior job (but am still getting the same % deducted in my new role), do I notify anyone or will I just receive the delta in the form of a refund during tax season?
Hi Tax Bowlers, I'm an experienced associate (2yrs) in a Big 4 Transfer Pricing division. I have reached a point in my career where I am considering taking up a professional certification. Several colleagues recommended taking up either ACCA or CFA, however, I see little connection between these certifications and the work that I am currently doing, and what I plan to do in the future. What would you guys suggest? Would it be detrimental to my career if I did not take up any certifications?

I'd like to give people some hope!
