The KPMG Tax Internship Program (TIP) is a carefully crafted program geared towards furthering KPMG’s zeal for mentorship and personal development. Keeping in mind the KPMG values and the drive to exceed the quality of internship programs which the other KPMG member firms have established through international awards and citations, the Tax Lawyers of KPMG R.G. Manabat & Co. (RGM&Co.) came up with the TIP which aims to develop interns through innovative intern-centered activities. The KPMG TIP features soft skills trainings, talks and tours hosted by government agencies we deal with such as the BIR and SEC, as well as technical trainings on Taxation and Corporate Law. Further, we are proud to highlight that mentorship is at the heart of the KPMG TIP as the interns are paired with lawyer-mentors who guide our law student interns through their RGM&Co. journey. 

We wish to share with you on this page some of the highlights of our experience with our 2019 tax law student interns as well as the past interns’ insights on the program. We encourage law students to join and apply for the KPMG TIP this year for a holistic, immersive and impactful tax internship. To law students seeking internship opportunities, we hope to see you soon in the Firm.
