About Jerry

Jerry Musi is a tax partner and the national financial service tax industry leader at RSM US LLP. He is a lead tax expert in the asset management sector of financial services, specifically serving private equity, small business investment company funds, debt and venture capital funds. He joined RSM in 1994 as a_ tax associate and has been part of the firm since then, working out of the New York City office. 


Experience

With more than 27 years of experience, Jerry has an extensive background in tax compliance and consulting issues affecting private equity funds. He works closely with chief financial officers of investment funds and finance directors to provide specialized knowledge in tax planning and tax advisory services. He has a high-level tax compliance and consulting background in partnerships, other pass-through entities, corporations and individual tax planning. Jerry stays abreast of legislative tax issues affecting private equity funds and other alternative investment vehicles. A frequent writer and speaker, Jerry is often interviewed by private equity tax periodicals and called upon for advice on private equity tax issues across the firm. 

Born and raised in Queens, New York, and Long Island, Jerry feels fortunate that he’s had the opportunity to meet people of nearly every nationality and culture through his work at RSM. Jerry is a relationship builder known for his skills in communication and client service. He is invested in the next generation of leaders at RSM and appreciates helping colleagues develop into future leaders and partners of the firm. 

Jerry was an original member of the firm’s culture, diversity and inclusion (CDI) working group, helping shape the mission and direction of the firm’s CDI efforts. He is passionate about bringing diverse perspectives to the firm to broaden the scope of opinions and skill sets. He finds this pursuit extremely rewarding and critical to the firm’s success. Jerry has been active in many of the firm’s employee network groups, including STAR to support women in the firm, and Abilities to raise awareness of those with disabilities. Inspired by his participation in these groups, he has joined charitable committees and events outside the firm to benefit the Alzheimer’s Association and Autism Speaks. 

When he’s not advising private equity CFOs on tax issues, Jerry indulges in his love of the law by visiting courthouses to attend and listen to civil and criminal court cases.
