I specialize in nonprofit tax and I’m trying to increase my knowledge in my complex or unusual nonprofits tax issues since I don’t get the exposure that much at work (international activities, private benefit, UBI, etc.). Does anyone have any books or CPEs that they recommend? Or courses that they took that went into detail on this? Most of what I find is more about NFP management skills then the more technical side of it.

I’m so frustrated with my senior right now. He hops into my workpapers late at night and reviews them even though they are not completed and I have not signed off yet. He’ll do this before it’s even due.

What is the purpose? He leaves issues like “dates are still PY” or “this looks like py balances” for analytics. And I’m just like wtf, yeah no sh*t bro. I haven’t even gotten to that w/p yet. I haven’t had a similar problem with anyone else and it’s really starting to get to me.
