Spring 2025 Tax Internship (In-Person)
Location: Downtown Austin or Round Rock, TX
Approx. Start/End Dates: 01/21/2025 – 04/17/2025
Hours Requirements: 40-55 hours per week
Who We Are
Maxwell Locke & Ritter LLP is the largest locally owned accounting firm in the greater Austin area. We’re known for offering exceptional work-life balance and our dedication to our people, our clients, and our community. We’ve been named Accounting Today’s “#1 Best Mid-sized Accounting Firm to Work For” in the US three of the past five years, with a 2nd place ranking in 2020.
What You’ll Be Doing
As a tax intern, you will be a key part of our tax team during the busiest time of the year for accounting professionals. You will be trained on software programs and tax return procedures to prepare federal income tax returns and assist in various tax consulting projects. You will apply your education in a hands-on, fast-paced learning environment, collaborate with associates and partners, and connect with a dedicated mentor throughout your internship.
This is an in-person internship, providing superior developmental, teaming, and experience value. In order to help accommodate this, we will provide a monthly living stipend ($1000) from January through April.
What Sets Us Apart
We’re redefining what it means to work in public accounting by:
How You Can Grow
Unlike most tax internship experiences, you will have the opportunity to see a wide variety of tax returns. You will complete returns independently from start to finish, contribute to weekly production meetings, and meet regularly with your mentor in monthly feedback meetings. All interns also have the opportunity to participate in both firmwide and departmental professional development and social offerings.
The learning curve is steep, but you will quickly improve your analytical and professional communication skills to position you for future career success.
Our Commitment to DEI
As a firm that embraces people from different backgrounds, we encourage applications from those who identify with the BIPOC or LGBTQ+ communities, possess visible or hidden disabilities, and/or have served in the military. Let us know if you prefer certain pronouns or if you need reasonable accommodations at any point throughout our recruitment and selection process.
Maxwell Locke & Ritter is committed to fostering, cultivating, and preserving a culture of diversity, equity, and inclusion at all levels of our firm. To support this endeavor, our DEI committee focuses internal efforts on awareness, recruitment, and outreach.
Maxwell Locke & Ritter LLP provides equal employment opportunities (EEO) to all employees and applicants for employment without regard to race, color, religion, age, sex, national origin, disability status, genetics, protected veteran status, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, or any other characteristic protected by federal, state, or local laws.
