What can I expect as a first/second year M&A Tax Senior in Chicago in terms of salary? I hear $100k seems to be the market rate these days but that seems far fetched to myself

Are you a cpa or JD? I would guess jd’s get about 10-15% more on average.... not sure but would love to hear from someone who knows

100k sounds about right for a CPA

If you’re coming from a different firm and negotiating an offer I would say go high, even around $110k but know you’ll probably get pushed down to around $100k. If it’s an internal transfer assume you’ll be bumped to high 90’s at best and that probably won’t happen immediately
