Frank Zerjav, a Certified Public Accountant since 1972, is the founder and CEO of two firms, Zerjav & Associates and the Advisory Group. Based in the Westport area of west St. Louis County, Missouri, these entities represent a national clientele, many who are professionals and business owners in the areas of health care, computer technologies, real estate, retail, engineering, and law. Frank Zerjav and his team of tax professionals count nearly 2000 professionals and business owners among their clientele. Both firms offer a range of services, including tax preparation and planning, entity structuring, business succession planning, and accounting system implementation. Together with his associates, Frank Zerjav employs tax strategies designed to prevent an audit by the US Internal Revenue Services. He also represents clients facing an audit, tax problem, or related controversy with both federal and state tax agencies. He protects his clients' rights and assets by using proven techniques and advanced examination methods. His goal is to prevent financial losses arising from interest assessments, penalties, or additional assessments. In many cases, Frank Zerjav has protected the interests of his mostly high-net-worth clients who own a professional practice or business. On several occasions, these clients thought they had no recourse against the IRS, but he was able to prove otherwise. Apart from running Zerjav & Associates and the Advisory Group, Mr. Zerjav frequently speaks before national audiences on tax planning strategies. He also maintains a financial stake in several privately held companies in various sectors, including management, finance, business services, accounting, and real estate. Mr. Zerjav was educated at St. Louis University, where he earned a Bachelor of Science in Commerce and an MBA, with a concentration in finance.
