What's a competitive salary for a senior tax role in NYC? Licensed CPA with 3.5 yrs experience. Looking at midsized public firms. Thanks!

If I were you I'd try to get over 100. But if you're looking outside big 4, prob drop by 10k. I would not accept anything less than 90 if I were you in NYC

@manager1 I'm at 88k now at a smaller firm. I was hoping for at least 100 but my recruiter says it's not realistic. Just wondering what you guys think

The fact that housing in the city is expensive doesn't dictate the market value of salaries. $100K is high for a senior in the market. I agree with the recruiter that it's unrealistic. I'd say mid $90s is on the high end of what's reasonable for the market. Smaller firms pay more than the larger ones for retention purposes. The larger firms have larger networks and better exit ops from their "brand value", and they're aware of that fact, which is why salaries are a bit lower than the very small firms.

I would say if you are getting 95 you will be selling yourself short.

90 to 95 is a good range. 100 if you find a firm that is pressured to hire

85 is realistic. Some firms pay 95 for 5 plus years experience

100 including bonus is likely
