New app shows Lexington salary data from consenting TurboTax users

A new app powered by Intuit, the makers of TurboTax, shows salary data for various careers in the Lexington area. The app is powered by anonymous income information provided by consenting Lexington TurboTax users. They checked the box, Intuit ran the numbers, and now we can all see for ourselves what other local people in our professions make.

Some occupations don’t have enough entries to keep the contributors fully anonymous, so those are not displayed.

According to the app,

The average total salary for a Registered Nurse is $64,500 per year. This is based on data from 864 TurboTax users who reported their occupation as Registered Nurse and includes taxable wages, tips, bonuses, and more. Registered Nurse salary can vary between $30,000 to $115,000 depending on factors including education, skills, experience, employer & location.

Our Take

Being open and transparent about salaries is important. The old ways always told us that we should keep this information to ourselves, but more and more people, especially those in groups that are traditionally underpaid compared to their counterparts, have begun thumbing their noses at that notion. This seems like a good thing as long as everyone knew how and why their tax data was being used.
