Return I’m working in is hedge fund, new client/1st year , in kind contributions, sec 1256 (which I’m not sure I’m totally understanding), organizational costs ect. Receive 40 correction points back. I did my best to correct. Also I set up meeting to discuss I am just feeling very overwhelmed. Does anyone have any advice for a first year?

Really difficult to prep an initial year return as a first year. Don’t worry about it.

As a manager I care less about the amount of comments I give and more about what you do to learn from it and how you accept the feedback. Best thing you can do is learn from your mistakes and do your best not to make the same mistakes twice. Also the fact that you set up a meeting to discuss the items you aren’t sure about is great.

If you’re a first year don’t worry about it. Try to learn from all the review notes and not make the same mistake twice and you’ll kill it. You got this! You’ll be a pro soon!

I wouldn't take it personally. He's likely just frustrated that the senior left and now he has to work directly with staff 1, after years of working his way up and not usually having to deal with the first year learning experience. Everyone starts somewhere
