Description

We believe in a system in which taxes are simpler, fairer, flatter, more visible, and lower than they are today. The government's power to control one’s life derives from its power to tax. We believe that power should be minimized. ATR was founded in 1985 by Grover Norquist at the request of President Reagan.

ATR is a nonprofit, 501(c)(4) taxpayer advocacy group. Contributions to Americans for Tax Reform are not tax deductible. The Americans for Tax Reform Foundation is a 501c(3) research and educational organization. All contributions to the Americans for Tax Reform Foundation are tax deductible to the extent provided for in federal law.

Internship Description: Americans for Tax Reform offers the chance to work alongside some of the best political advocates in Washington, as well as the opportunity for increasing responsibility. Interns are assigned to work on policy issues side by side with members of our staff. As a key part of the ATR team, interns work on projects such as the Taxpayer Protection Pledge (both federal and state candidates pledge not to raise taxes). Interns also have the opportunity to work on the Cost of Government Day, a report identifying and calculating government spending as a cost to taxpayers, and the International Property Rights Index, a report on the status of intellectual and physical property rights worldwide. Furthermore, many interns due to their work have been showcased on Drudge Report, The Daily Caller, The Washington Times, and other political publications!

ATR accepts applications from undergraduate and graduate students of all majors. Full-time and part-time interns are paid $10.50 an hour. The positions can be taken for credit through the applicant's home university or college, coinciding with spring, summer, and fall semester dates. Please note that priority is given to those who can make a 16 week internship commitment for the fall and spring semesters and 14 weeks in the summer.
