Our accountant (at a local company) is a great resource for information on budgeting and calculating tax. He and I talk about this all the time and it helps to get a good feel for the costs of our work. It’s also how we can compare our work with other locations that have similar jobs.
Taxes are a big reason why most people don’t work full-time. Taxes are the last major expense in a person’s budget, accounting for about one-third of the total. It’s no surprise that when you’re working for $100,000 a year, it’s still really hard to afford the essentials.
I have several accounting partners, and they are all a pain in the ass. One of them, in particular, has been asking me to do it for the last 4 months now. He had a $20k budget for his taxes and said we can’t afford to do it without him. I told him that I personally spend almost all of my time on a computer and that we definitely couldn’t afford to do it without him.
When I first started working with Accounting Partner, my partner was earning only 10,000 a year, and we spent most of the time fixing his mistakes. The last thing I needed was someone who would be so rude and disrespectful that he would not only take his own salary, but make a point out of not doing his job. Luckily he agreed.
What did I think? Well, I thought that he was a jerk. But I thought he was too good a person to be a jerk. Because he was so nice to me when I first got there. He made me feel like he really cared about me and wanted me to succeed.
The salary is the least of your problems. The biggest is the fact that you will have to deal with the fact that you will be paying the same salary to the same person for the rest of your life. This is a really big deal, because the only way to get a raise is to get a promotion, and that is not guaranteed.
So if you need to take your time-looping stealthy ass somewhere, you might want to think about that first.
There is no guarantee that you will get a raise or that you will get a promotion. The only way to get a raise is to get some kind of promotion. The only way to get a promotion is to get promoted to a higher salary. That is not guaranteed either.
The numbers are pretty spotty. You can be promoted from your current position or from a new one. For example, our previous salaries were: President of the Company ($175K), Vice President of the Company ($130K), and General Counsel ($80K). You can’t just get a raise if you get promoted to the top position, though, because you still have to get promoted to that higher salary.
A little research will show you that the salary you have when you get promoted actually follows the same pattern as the salary you have as an accountant. In general, the better you do as an accountant, the more you get paid. Similarly, the better you do as a human, the more you get paid.
