I have 50k in my 401k account and I am planning to move back to India by next year, I plan to be vested in the 401k for long term, hopefully till maturity. In that case, when I withdraw my 401k amount after 30 years will I be liable to pay taxes in India or USA?and will it make sense to convert the 401k to roth IRA?
Just got a big raise (50%+) starting July 1st that is going to move me out of income limits for direct Roth IRA contributions (prior to raise was under the limit) even with maxed pretax 401k and HSA - however I am already halfway through contributions ($3000). What options do I have to address these excess contributions?

Do things like the $1500 gift from Microsoft get lumped into "benefits"? And are there any companies that you should expect more things like that from, and is it a significant factor when taking a job?

I found this article and wondered what people here thought about it. It deals with teacher licensing tests. Among other things, it presents the case for a positive correlation between performance on a licensing test and performance in the classroom. It also argues there is an outsized number of teachers (over 50%) that don’t pass the licensing test on the first try. Any newer teachers out there who can weigh in on their teacher prep program and the licensing test experience? https://www.nctq.org/publications/Driven-by-Data:-Using-Licensure-Tests-to-Build-a-Strong,-Diverse-Teacher-Workforce/

Long post that’s going to spill into the comments so please bear with me 😅 Anyone having a problem with being overlooked on their team? I worked on implementing a new system, recruiting app teams to test it out, & creating a thorough guide to help people learn it. Back to back meetings with clients & different teams; I was dedicated to this project for months. My coworker added a 2-pg FAQ section & essentially got credit for doing everything even after I shared my contributions to my supervisor.

Anyone else feel like their actual work is very disconnected from their paycheck? If I do a great job and create a ton of value for the client I’ll get a maximum of a 15% TC increase YOY (much less due to covid). Similarly if I do the absolute minimum it’s really hard to be fired since I’m in a hot market and they can’t decrease my TC without cutting my base pay (which I’m 99% sure they won’t do). And my raise/bonus won’t even necessarily be indicative of my performance anyways.
