Senior Tax Associate Relocating; Negotiating Salary

Hi All,

I need some advice. I got an offer in Seattle as a tax senior with another Big 4 firm. I am from Southern California who is about to get promoted to senior.

They offer me a 75k base no signing or relocation assistance but I tried getting a signing bonus. I haven’t signed anything. Should I negotiate my starting salary? Is there a chance that they can rescind my offer?

Thanks for all your help. Let me know if you need more info.
