Thoughts?
There should be a tax rebate for TAX payers. Our Pan and Adhaar is already linked so whenever we purchase anything we should get it without any extra tax. It should apply on everything including flight, railway, bus, cab, food items, groceries, clothes etc. We middle class working professionals are most extracted even before we get our salaries our tax is deducted. We pay taxes honestly and we deserve tax concessions.

MISSING: have you seen my candidate who burned my client & me in a bonkers way?

tl;dr made a CD CW relo hire for a client & found him an apartment w/my landlord. Dude moved, showed up day 1, made a bunch of weird excuses, QUIT day 3, skipped town, burning me & my client BIG TIME. Truly unhinged & sketchy behavior. Obviously there's another offer. Male CW, white, 40s, unusual name. Recently working in France (American). THINK he's in NY. Sound like anyone you recently hired/work with? HMU!

Hi, I have worked for 4 major hospital systems both on the east and west coasts and I am tired of the politics, bureaucracy, and archaic policies. I am finishing up my master’s in informatics and want to work for an exciting company that values its employees and has good job security. I’m really interested in joining a health tech firm. Any recommendations? I don’t even know if they hire nurses but it’s something I’d like to explore. Location can be anywhere in the US.

So I am in charging an engagement with another senior on it (who is on another audit as well). Whenever I look at their work, I’ve noticed it’s done wrong, but since I’m an associate I am not in a place to review their work. Do I just leave it to the manager to catch it?

I’ve worked in PA for almost 2yr and have got my CPA. However, there are times when I feel like my brain is so slow when understanding client’s JE flow esp when it comes to accrual/reserve and where manual AJEs are involved etc. I feel like understanding accounting in the context of audit is different from doing the actual corporate accounting. Sometimes I feel like a fake accountant LOL
