The Department of Revenue Services has established the student internship program as an option to provide opportunities for hands-on work experience not typically available to students in the traditional academic setting. DRS welcomes students with educational backgrounds in a variety of academic areas: accounting, finance, business administration, criminal justice, legal studies and computer science.
DRS administers 36 different taxes, which results in the agency providing approximately 68% of the state’s income.

At times internships can be customized to meet the students’ interests and educational background.
