Our Team

Anthony F. Bearoff, Jr., C.P.A.

Anthony F. Bearoff, Jr. started his accounting career back in 1997 working as an accountant at Charles J. Piermani & Company. He was a student at Temple University where he graduated in 2000 with a Bachelors in Business Administration majoring in Accounting. After graduation Anthony attended Philadelphia University where in 2002 he graduated Summa Cum Laude and received his Masters in Taxation. Prior to passing the CPA exam in 2009, Anthony was promoted to Vice-President at Charles J. Piermani & Co. and an announcement was made that the company was changing its name to Piermani & Bearoff, P.C. In 2012, Anthony completed the experience requirements necessary to receive his Certified Public Accounting Certificate. In 2015, after much thought, Anthony made the decision to go out on his own and open his own accounting firm.

Anthony's main expertise is tax preparation for individuals and corporations where he prepares close to 1,100 returns a year. He provides tax advice to his clientele and helps them achieve their tax goals. Anthony also devotes much of his time working with the closely-held business owners whether helping them form and start from scratch or just compile their monthly books and records. He provides them with financial statements and advises them in the growth of their business.

Outside of the office, Anthony enjoys spending time with his family and friends. He is happily married to his wife Lauren and they have two beautiful children; their son Dominic, and daughter, Jordyn.

Jason M. Palaia, E.A.

Jason M. Palaia graduated in 2004 from the University of Tampa with a Bachelor in Business Administration majoring in Accounting. He began his career working for Charles J. Piermani & Company. While there, Jason worked closely with Anthony Bearoff servicing clients in the areas of bookkeeping, payroll processing, and preparing income tax returns. After two years with Piermani, Jason joined St. Clair CPAs in Conshohocken working on audit and tax engagements. In his fourth year at St. Clair, Jason’s passion and skill in taxation lead to an opportunity to join the firms Tax Department. He worked on high net worth individual, partnership and corporate income tax returns. In 2012, Jason joined Fortis Partners as Tax Manager. He performed reviews on ultra-high net worth individual, partnership and corporate income tax returns. While rising into the higher echelon of the accounting field, Jason always had a longing to go back to his roots of a small accounting firm where he could once again have an intimate relationship with the individuals and businesses he would provide income tax and consulting services too.

Completely by chance, Jason and Anthony reconnected in mid-2016. Jason knew the time was right for him to make the move back to the area of accounting that was true to his heart and he joined Bearoff & Associates. Today they operate out of an office located in Blue Bell, PA.

In 2014, Jason received his Enrolled Agent status. An Enrolled Agent is a federally authorized tax practitioner empowered by the U.S. Department of the Treasury and who can represent taxpayers before the Internal Revenue Service. Enrolled Agent status is the highest credential awarded by the IRS.

When Jason is not working, he enjoys spending time with family and friends. He and his wife, Teresa, reside in the suburbs outside Philadelphia and have three beautiful children; their son Jaxson and two daughters, Carly and Molly.
