Job Description

The Washington Post is seeking a dynamic and self-motivated tax intern interested in gaining practical experience as a tax department contributor.
The purchase of The Washington Post by Amazon founder, Jeff Bezos, has propelled the company into the elite set of US digital publishers. Recently, The Washington Post has surpassed 3 million digital subscribers and was just named "Hottest in News" and "Hottest in Social Media" for digital publishers by
Adweek. Fast Company put The Washington Post at the top of the "World's Most Innovative Companies" of 2015, 2017, and 2018 in Media. Along with the robust investment and record-breaking growth in digital revenue, traffic, and subscriptions comes the responsibility of accurately and timely complying with
increasing US and international reporting requirements. You will be part of a team charged with this task, using modern tax compliance technology (OneSource), research tools, and technical accounting and tax
knowledge combined with comprehensive judgment to identify and solve technical tax and compliance issues.

Tax compliance is a deadline driven process. A strong candidate in this position must be organized, possess a sense of urgency, and be able to communicate with internal departments as well as external vendors to correctly prepare tax returns. Strong Excel skills are also essential for this role as all of the
return data is aggregated in Excel prior to migrating to the tax software.

The position's responsibilities will include utilizing Excel capabilities to automate tax calculations, preparing Federal and state income tax returns using OneSource tax software, and reviewing tax return drafts for
correctness. Responsibilities may also include ad hoc tax research and analysis projects on various tax topics.

  • You must be pursuing an undergraduate degree or graduate degree in Accounting or Taxation.

What is the length of the internship?
The internship timing is flexible. The duration of the internship is approximately 10-12 weeks with a start date in June and an end date in August. The internship will be full time.
