That is all too common on a lot of the jobs i see. Flooring contracrors are always putting in new sub-floors then tile on top causing the flange( which usually needs replacing anyway) to sit too low.
Worse, they are often watched over by a general contractor who should know enough to get a plumber involved, but seldom does.
Then we get the call to set the fixture cause the contractor cant get it to work. Ends up costing him more in the long run and it serves him right!!
Or if the flange is low enough you could use a pvc spacer flange on top of that one, spin it so the bolt holes line up..Or cut it out ..Just hope the fender washers don't pull on the sides and break..
It by no means is easy to get a big set under the pvc with your closet bolt then I put another washer on top of that with a nut then wax then bowl...etc etc...but u guys probably already know this...but now if its on a wood floor then thats a different story...
