I see DU as a downside. I'd rather have cool trainings in Orlando or Denver or New York like my B4 friends have so I can do out at nights. I've done 3 DU visits. It gets old at some point.

Ah nm Texas

DT pays for equinox and you get a work phone

Don't all b4 give phones? Seems like they are all same/similar?!?

I agree on DU, gets old after a while

Not all trainings are at DU these days, gets booked up a year in advance. Pretty nice track for running or biking!

Hi! I have a few questions on the backdoor Roth in which I’ve done a bit of research online. When it comes tax time, will my 401k vendor (Merrill) give me the correct documents? I’ve just used turbo tax in the past but am worried of any documents I may be missing to adjust any tax. Also- when does the pro-rata rule come into play? I’m just nervous in the entire process as this is my first year doing this. TIA!!

Maybe off-topic, but I’ve got a question related to taxes and withholding. 2020 was the first year that both me and my wife made full salaries in our high-paying jobs (she’s a pharmacist, I’m in consulting). We don’t do anything out of the ordinary to reduce our taxes, we just put ~ 6% each towards our 401k’s. No house or kids so our other deductions are limited. Just started doing taxes and got a shock that we owe big. Any others in this situation? Do you just withhold a ton extra on W4?
