Dean Zerbe, J.D., LL.M. Partner — Zerbe, Miller, Fingeret, Frank & Jadav LP, and Senior Policy Analyst at National Whistleblower Center, has long been at the forefront of the IRS tax whistleblower program – starting in 2006 when serving as Senior Counsel and Tax Counsel for the Senate Finance Committee for then-Chairman Charles E. Grassley (R-IA) he was the staffer responsible for the legislation that created the modern IRS whistleblower program. Mr. Zerbe left government service in 2008 to practice law at Zerbe, Miller, Fingeret, Frank & Jadav law firm — and in 2010 he was asked to serve as cocounsel for Mr. Brad Birkenfeld’s whistleblower award claim.

IRS, 144 TC 15 (2017) which established the definition of “collected proceeds” for purposes of determining an award under the whistleblower law. The Tax Court decision was recently codified by the U.S. Congress. Mr. Zerbe has published widely in a number of publications regarding the IRS whistleblower law and has consulted with state governments as well as foreign nations about tax whistleblower laws and also serves as Senior Policy Analyst for the National Whistleblower Center.
