Tax noob question. Why do we make m adjustment for accrued bonus, accrued vacation accounts, but not payroll liabilities or 401k?

Because payroll liabilities and 401Ks are usually paid in the 2.5 month window and qualify for the deduction. They are also fixed and determinable.

Good question! Wish I had staff that asked these kinds of questions. It shows you’re engaged, interested and willing to learn. And a good senior or manager would use this as a teaching opportunity…reading through 461, discussing other adjustments that are similar, and setting expectations on how and when you should do some research when faced with something unknown.

BDO 1 clearly is not one of those seniors or managers.

Read 461.

Small firm atty - have offer for large firm in totally new area of law. Lateral as a senior associate with 4-5 year partnership track. (I've practiced for almost 8 years). Billable goals are 1800. I already have a 3 week vacation planned/paid for next summer. Significant pay increase (60k+) but will lose the laid back, flexible nature of my current gig AND have to learn a new practice area. I don't NEED the money, but this would allow me to save more/pull the plug more quickly. Thoughts?

Hey everyone! Wanted some advice - got an offer from a big ad agency for a Planning Manager role. Base salary is $90K (more than satisfactory, I have 2.5-3 years of total agency exp), but their PTO is severely lacking especially compared to my unlimited PTO benefit at my current job - they offered 10 actual PTO days, which are even prorated since it's mid-year. Assuming their PTO allowance is negotiable, any advice for how to handle the email follow-up to the written offer/how much to ask for?

Pretty highly rated consistently and up for director this year. For years been thinking of starting a business (franchise). Pandemic has put a dent in that but still viable option. Gross profit is 350k (median) and a line of business I’d be very interested in. Clearly this is less pay than new parter (but could open more than one eventually) and risk may be higher for failure. What other factors should I consider when evaluating staying to partner or trying my hand as an entrepreneur?

I did some reading to better understand ira vs roth ira. If you are in the range of $80k, does it make sense to covert into roth ira?

I understand if you have ira, you can get deduction on 1040. If you have a roth ira, it does not include into your taxable income and no deduction allowed.
