Frankly, it gets boring after a while. No one (often even other PA firms) wants you after senior because you don't know anything about tax accounting or tax returns. Limited promotion opportunities if you stay because your company only needs so many people to do what you do. Also next downtown, you're the first one to go because companies stop pursuing tax credits or look to pay less since they can't use it with nol

I wouldn’t be worried. If you are a good performer there should always be a place for you. Build relationships and learn how to sell work

Honestly, working the R&D credit is a sweet gig to land. Work hours are relatively minimal compared to other tax groups, and the work can be rather interesting if you’re on different industry clients. Granted it’s a narrow field, but if you can do it in the Big 4, the raises are great and a monkey could do the work.

But every time I get on here I feel like staying in a niche practice is not very ideal. What would be a potential Cons for not being able to get out of PA??

You can take data analysis jobs with an R&D background. You’ll still develop an understanding of tax and accounting by doing R&D.

Will I need to learn additional programming to qualify? Macro is as far as I can go right now.
