alliantgroup's Dean Zerbe is sought after by the national media for commentary and insights on tax issues because of his hands-on experience with policymaking during his years as a senior Senate legal advisor and through his ongoing Washington, DC connections. Dean is quoted in Accounting Today and Bloomberg Businessweek regarding his thoughts on the extension of the Payroll Tax Cut.
Dean Zerbe is National Managing Director for alliantgroup and former Senior Tax Counsel for the U.S. Senate Finance Committee. During his tenure as a Senate senior staffer, Dean was intimately involved with almost every major piece of tax legislation that was signed into law – including the 2001 and 2003 tax reconciliation bills (representing two of the largest tax cuts in the nation's history); the JOBS bill in 2004 (corporate tax reform); and, the Pension Protection Act. On behalf of alliantgroup clients and the CPA firms we support, Dean is the voice on Capitol Hill for tax issues that impact small and medium businesses across the country.
