How is the second job going?

I'm curious too.  I have considered doubling down on the remote thing but figured hiring/training would be a challenge initially

How is the second job going?

I think I may start sometime next week. Have to go pick up a laptop and a phone sometime. That's about all I know. We're not real big on details.

I'm supposed to be training for 2-3 days in each of the first 2-3 weeks. I plan on taking PTO on those days.

PLEASE GOD CHUM, promise us that if you for some reason decide to resign from both jobs, that you'll wait and use one zoom invite to resign from both of them (AND RECORD IT) at the same time.  :pray:

If I know anything about the IRS, and I only kinda do, I doubt it. They have a lot of crap going on most times.

If there is something that the IRS routinely reports to employers that would be a giveaway, I don't know what it is. I don't plan on exceeding the IRS 401k contribution limit with the combined amount.

What about when you fill out your income tax withholding paperwork?

Yeah, I'm not going to tell them to withhold more due to the anticipated percentage increase from more income. So, I'll be paying more tax out of pocket.

yeah, they would catch that. but I doubt you'd get any blowback from getting two full matches (assuming both offer one).

i guess i don't know how most employee matches are structured.  at my old job, the only way to max out the employer contribution was to max out the employee contribution.

in hindsight you are probably going to bump into the max annual contribution if both companies offer good matches. may not work. but these are the kinds of ideas we must bring to the table. to crank this crap up a notch.

I'm thinking you need to lay the groundwork for a vague health issue (back?) at your new job just in case you need to get out of things.  Some remote guy I worked with would miss every in-person conference/event because of his back.

I think normally if the match is 3% you contribute whatever you want but your first 3% is matched by the company. my wife has one where she has set options to choose from where it is matched up to that in a 401(a) and then she can contribute to the max $19.5k in a 403(b). it's a sweet setup because she can blow past the normal $19.5k of her money because the 401(a) contribution doesn't count.

This is a great idea. Need to keep a wildcard in your back pocket that you can play when things get tight.
