You're Not Going To Believe This...

A previously released report in 2019 shook the industry when it displayed that nearly two-thirds of the heads of corporate tax departments and an equally startling 52% of #2s (reporting to HoT) were projected to retire in the near future.
Fast forward two years – look at the bewildering numbers below.
- Due to the fact that there is a larger pool of older boomers, we expect these numbers to accelerate over the next few years as this generation gets older.
- Interestingly, we see the #2s retiring at a faster rate than the #1s. We did not foresee this trend as we expected #1s to exit the workforce sooner, as they are typically more financially sound. Ironically, the #1s don’t need the money, but they are still sticking around longer.
