Tax Warrior Profile
Jane Scaccetti began her public accounting career in 1977. Since that day, she has gained extensive experience in tax and financial services for the family-owned and entrepreneurially driven business. As part of her practice, she consults with public and privately owned companies and provides both corporate and individual financial counseling. Jane also handles partnership and S corporation taxation, mergers and acquisitions, estate planning and other tax and financial matters. In addition to the responsibilities of her practice, Jane has had the opportunity to serve as a director on the boards of four publicly reporting companies. She currently serves as both a director and the Audit Committee Chair to The Pep Boys. She also serves on the board of Mathematica, Inc.
In 1990, Jane became one of the founding shareholders of Drucker & Scaccetti. She has since helped to define the client service philosophy of the firm as one of proactive involvement in the financial needs of its clients. Jane had previously brought this vision to Laventhol & Horwath, where, as a supervisor, she spearheaded the firm’s national efforts to offer services in personal financial counseling to its clients. It was her idea to provide these services on a proactive basis, rather than simply in response to specific client questions.
When Jane joined the partnership at Laventhol & Horwath in 1987, she became the first woman tax partner of a national accounting firm in Philadelphia. While there, she practiced in the areas of personal financial counseling, partnership taxation and estate planning. Later, she worked for two years as a full-time professor at Temple University, teaching taxation in the master’s program and managerial accounting as part of the undergraduate curriculum. Jane currently serves as a trustee on the boards of Temple University and Salus University. Jane also serves on the boards of Temple University Health System and Penn National Gaming.
Jane has received many awards and recognition over the years, including the 2006 PA Best 50 Women in Business Award, the Pinnacle Award and the 2010 Influential Woman of the Year. She has been recognized by the Philadelphia Business Journal as a Women of Distinction Award recipient (2010) and is an inaugural recipient of its Outstanding Directors Award (2013) for her work on the board of The Pep Boys: Manny Moe & Jack. Jane is also a member of the American and Pennsylvania Institutes of Certified Public Accountants as well the first woman regular host of Money Matters TV, a Comcast-produced local financial TV show.
Jane’s civic and community service includes serving as a Trustee of Temple University, Salus University, and a Director of Temple University Health System, where she chairs the Health Enterprise Committee, and Salus University, where she chairs the Finance Committee. Jane is also the past Chair of the Board of Temple University Health System and a recipient of its Acres of Diamonds award (2014).
