Taxpayer asks:

Hi taxgirl,

I love reading your blog. I think you’re funny and insightful. I’ve learned more from your site than from a whole semester of tax law.

I actually just graduated from law school and I am really interested in writing for your site. I checked out the “about” and “find me” tabs but I don’t see any information about how you can apply for an internship. So, what does a soon to be lawyer have to do to work for you?

Taxgirl says:

Gosh. *blushing* Thanks so much for the kind words.

Wait a sec and I’ll forward your email to my staff… Done. And um, got it. You see, I’m, the whole Just me. There is no staff. Nobody else writes or researches anything on my site as taxgirl. No ghostwriters. No editors (clearly). No interns. And I don’t expect that to change any time soon, though I am flattered that you asked.

I do accept guest posts from other writers. You don’t have to be a tax attorney to submit something. I’ve published freelancers, CPAs, and law students on my site – each of whom is clearly identified as a guest author when their piece is published. If you have something in mind that you’d like to work on and send (maybe a resume builder, since I’m guessing that you’re waiting for the bar results?), please do pass it along.

And that goes for everyone. If you have a guest post in mind, drop me a note. I don’t expect a thesis or a white paper but I do look for a well-written piece that shows thoughtfulness and point of view.

Best of luck in your legal career and again, thanks for the charitable comments. I appreciate it very much!

Before you go: be sure to read my disclaimer. Remember, I’m a lawyer and we love disclaimers.
