Sign on bonus amounts for junior or mid level tech transaction associates? Trying to decide whether to move.
I recently switched job and joined another B4 firm. As part of the hiring I was promised with a sign on bonus. Now I have received the sign on bonus twice, in back to back paychecks. I know I have to somehow return the second bonus to the firm. Does anyone know how taxes work on this? As both the bonuses were tax deducted prior to deposit, when I return amount do I need to pay back the withheld taxes to the firm as well? Asking as the amount is big and don’t want to go in the IRS route. TIA.

I was hoping the vaccine would help us get back to more normal, open, and less restricted activities. In some ways it has but since there are so many unvaccinated, is there any other way we’ll be able to move forward from this pandemic? P.S.

How do you exit without burning bridges? I don't have any motivation to leave work in a good spot. I just want to leave.
My last day with Deloitte was a week ago - I signed several authorization forms allowing them to withhold from my final paycheck the 1/2 of my sign-on bonus I owe back for leaving in 1.5 years, sans some FICA taxes. Today, I received a barely coherent email saying, “due to some glitch, the loan amount wasn’t adjusted from pay-stub”... and asking me to wire transfer the amount to them. It’s to the point that if it wasn’t on the same thread as the original email, I would assume it’s a scam. Wtf?
UPDATE (because I’m nervous and why not) I had the interview for an Assistant Controller job where I needed to prepare presentations. Thankfully, I moved on to the 5th round, a call with the CFO. The recruiter let me know this was the last step. As for the call with the CFO, it was pretty good. But she, the CFO, let me know the recruiter will follow up with me as usual. Because I’ve been calling/texting the recruiter, I’m anxious to follow up by phone. Any insight would be appreciated.
