Every year, the Campaign for Working Families, Inc. recruits, trains, and manages hundreds of volunteers and interns who staff free tax sites across Philadelphia and surrounding counties, as well as South Jersey. In 2019, CWF’s Philadelphia and South Jersey tax sites provided over 48,000 taxpayers with access to important tax credits through free tax preparation, resource building and asset development services. Since our founding, we have brought in over $441 million in refunds to our region’s economy.
For this upcoming tax season, CWF is seeking highly-motivated and mature individuals to fill our multiple Tax Associate intern positions. All students, no matter your major, are encouraged to apply, because each intern will learn critical skills that will not only enhance your resume but also your prospects for employment upon graduation.
Individuals should possess strong quantitative skills and be extremely detailed-oriented. Previous accounting and/or tax preparation experience is a plus. This is a great training opportunity for Accounting, Finance and Business majors. Tax Associates will be engaged in various roles including tax preparation and Quality Review, as well as operations/administrative support. Duties and responsibilities may expand based upon individual strengths and schedule availability.
