TSG was founded by Thomas Zavieh in 2017 to meet a growing need for specialty tax services in the small to mid-size company market. Tommy has over 20 years of consulting and tax experience, primarily in the specialty tax field. He has served all sizes of entity, but he saw that smaller companies, particularly start-ups, were not being served. Tax Specialty Group is his answer to that need.

The TSG team is composed of CPAs, Engineers, JDs and PhDs who are experts in tax specialty space. When asked what we do, we simply say that we are translators: We speak Engineering and Tax Code – therefore we can just as easily speak to your engineers and your CFO which translates to efficiency and maximizing the value of the services we offer.
