Eternally Thankful!!
After my husband suffered a life altering brain injury, I became responsible for all financial matters for the family. My husband had been the sole responsible party prior to the brain injury, which left him confined to a wheel chair and legally blind. During the initial chaotic period, it became abundantly clear that our finances were in great need of focus, including outstanding taxes. One lawyer had told me that my only option was to place my husband in a nursing home and to sell all of our assets, including our home. This was NOT an option for our family. My husband is a wonderful husband and father. The cause of his financial stress occurred after being laid-off from a company for which had been employed for 28 years. Fortunately, a very professional financial adviser gave me the recommendation to call Jason Peck. That may have been the best piece of advice I have ever received. After consultation and review of our situation, Jason let us know that we had another option, although a lengthier process. He suggested that we work with the IRS on an Offer in Compromise. He worked with the IRS, discussed our personal situation, and presented our Offer in Compromise. During this period, I did not sleep. The anxiety of our outstanding tax responsibility was on my mind continually. Jason assured me, through several conversations, to leave it in his hands and that hopefully our situation would not be as dire as it was at that time. When I received the acceptance from the IRS of our Offer in Compromise, I cried harder than I had in a very long time. He was able to minimize our obligation, allowing my husband and I to remain in our home of nearly twenty years with our children. I will never be able to thank The Peck Group enough for what they have done for my family. There are two things I have always feared: lawyers and the IRS. I am now so grateful for both. This matter could not have been handled with any more professionalism, respect and compassion. Truly, if you are in a situation involving your taxes, The Peck Group will do all that they can for you.

Tax Preparer Penalty Fees
I hired Dr. Peck to help with my tax preparer penalty issue. From our first meeting, I felt immediate relief because he knew what he was doing and the best way to help me. My case lasted only a few months during which we were in constant communication. I never felt that my case was left in a drawer. My calls were always returned in a timely and professional manner. I would recommend Dr. Peck to anybody with a tax issue. Mine was successfully closed without much anxiety from my part.

Above and beyond
It is very rare that I take the time to write a review, much less a recommendation letter but my experience with the Peck Group, specifically Jason Peck warrants the effort. In 2019 I found myself in a major predicament. An LLC I had invested in several years prior had neglected to pay required taxes including payroll trust fund taxes. To make matters worse I was designated as a "responsible party", even though I was just a passive investor and had nothing to do with the company's operations. I contacted an attorney I had used in the past for various business purposes to seek advice. He immediately recommended that I contact Jason Peck. After my initial consultation with Jason I knew I was at the right place. Jason did not sugarcoat the situation. He explained to me how seriously the IRS takes payroll trust fund tax violations and the fact that my official time to challenge my designation expired only made it a bigger hurdle. But he also confidently stated that although my situation was "out of the box", his job was to find someone within the IRS hierarchy that would not only listen to the facts but also have the authority to over turn an unjust situation. Jason then facilitated a "compromise" action with the IRS. In April of 2020, my financial advisor/broker informed me that the IRS had levied several hundred thousand dollars from my account which required that my account be liquidated! I immediately called Jason in a panic. The first thing Jason did was tell me to "take a deep breath" and committed that he would do everything possible to rectify the situation. The first thing Jason did was contact my broker, assure him that a mistake had been made and implore him not to do anything with my account. Jason then obtained from my broker the specific IRS agent that facilitated the garnish process. Within a couple of hours Jason contacted the IRS agent, convinced him that a mistake had definitely been made, and got the IRS agent to immediately provide documentation to the brokerage house that indeed a mistake had been.....all accomplished within 24 hours! Jason's efforts didn't stop there. Over the next several months Jason was persistent to find that "person" within the IRS who again, would listen and had authority. Eventually Jason identified the correct IRS employee to address my situation. Jason successfully argued and IRS agreed that I was NOT a "responsible party"! Obviously, I was ecstatic about the final outcome, but it was how Jason conducted himself throughout the process that has made such an impression on me. From day one Jason made an effort to know all the facts regarding my case; not only asking many initial questions but following up on several occasions just to make sure there was nothing overlooked. He consistently reached out to let me know the status of my case, even when it was to tell me there was nothing to report. I never felt I was falling through the cracks but rather felt that my case was important to him. So with that said, it should be no surprise that I HIGHLY recommend the Peck Group to represent, whether it's an individual or company, anyone who finds themselves with any tax litigation issues.

The Peck Group, LC
After speaking to different firms, we retained The Peck Group, LC to help resolve some Federal and State tax issues. From our initial meeting with Jason, there was a sense of his grasp of the law, calm yet matter of fact demeanor and experience. It seemed obvious there was not much he had not observed and dealt with in these types of situations. He listened and retained the history and important details we had to share. Throughout the process, Jason and his Associates were present, attentive and prepared. The resolution unfolded over time but they contacted us as necessary, returned our calls and answered questions in a timely manner. In dealing with the IRS and State on our behalf, they negotiated until they felt the outcome was as fair and equitable as possible. In the end, it turned out much as they had predicted. We were able to reach a resolution and they helped reestablish our compliant status. We recommend The Peck Group, LC without reservation.

Great experience - knowledgeable attorney!
After not being paid 3 million dollars on a large account, our company was forced to decide between filing bankruptcy or fighting to stay in business. We chose to take on the struggle. However, I did not realize at the time how overwhelming the penalties and interest from tax debts could be. One morning when we went to look at our payroll account, the Georgia Department of Revenue levied our funds. We are in Tennessee, and this unexpected seizure forced us to consider bankruptcy. We researched a tax law firm in Georgia to see if there was anything that could be done. By the grace of the Lord, I called The Peck Group, LC. Attorney Jason Peck managed to get our company funds released and worked out a fair payment plan to get them paid without all of the penalties. In addition, our tax liens were released. The Peck Group, LC did such a great job with the Georgia sales tax matter, I retained them to address my individual Federal tax matter as well. The Peck Group, LC worked through these civil tax penalties one at a time making a fair settlement with each. I give great gratitude to The Peck Group, LC for their helping resolving these debts. Their actions allowed our company to continue business without filing bankruptcy and allowed me to live without fear of IRS and Department of Revenue aggressive actions. Respectfully, I strongly recommend the Georgia tax attorneys at The Peck Group, LC to resolve your Federal income tax and Georgia sales tax matters. Ronald

He saved my life!
I hired the world's worst bookkeeper she lied, cheated, and stole from me. Then on top of that an employee stole from me, tried to be bribe me, and then the IRS showed up as a result. It was a tough few year period. I came to Jason, lost, scared, and afraid. He helped me organize my thoughts, my life, and then helped me deal with the IRS. He worked well with me, was a great communicator, and truly saved my financial future. He was a blessing!

Professional and Quick Settlement
Jason was extremely helpful in settling our case with the IRS. He was thorough, easy to communicate with, and kept us informed every step along the way. Jason was the only one who had the skills to close our case that had been lingering on for years. We highly recommend him to anyone who wants to close their case quickly and effectively.

Jason helped me stay ahead of the IRS
I want to thank Jason for his help in getting me back into compliance with the IRS. He calmly explained what to expect at each step and helped navigate murky waters. I've gotten back into compliance since working with him and with his guidance, I have set myself correctly for the future.

Amazing knowledge and Skills
Used Jason for a tax audit and subsequent assessment. He presented actions and stayed with us every step of the way presenting and explaining options and actions. As stressful as the situation was he kept his eye on the objectives and worked diligently with us to resolve.

Fantastic Attorney! Helped deal with an IRS audit and is now my go to for taxes.
We hired Jason after an IRS audit. This was probably one of the most stressful things a person can go though. He worked diligently on the case and helped us come out way ahead on the audit then we would have alone. Ever since, he has been me and my fiancees go to for all things tax related. He's friendly, caring, and really good at what he does. Very highly recommended!

High Praise for Jason Peck
I am very pleased with the work that Jason Peck did for me and the result he was able to achieve. After speaking with friends and asking for attorney recommendations, Jason's name was the one that rose above the rest in terms of education and experience. He succeeded in taking control and making sense of what was a terrifying and seemingly impossible financial obstacle. The thought of hiring an attorney was in itself a daunting prospect, however after having been through the Offer in Compromise process now, I cannot imagine going head-to-head with the IRS on my own. I highly recommend Jason Peck to anyone facing a federal or state treasury issue.

Anxiety Relieved
I left the real estate crash of 2006-2008 with signifiant losses but, amazingly, significant liability left over from the "good years" before the burst. With the unorthodox position of little assets and great liability, Jason helped my wife and I real a true understanding of the options available to us.
