JG Tax Group   Scam, Complaint, Review, or Praise? Loading ...

Update 10-10-2012

We received an error report form allegedly from Jeff Galante regarding this post. Here is what he wanted to add to this post.

There is an article that appears on your website located here http://getoutofdebt.org/22149/jg-tax-group-scam-complaint-review-or-praise by QTMERMAID143 . The problem with this article is that this was written by a woman who is bipolar who we are working with. As you can see in this article http://getoutofdebt.org/46424/j-g-tax-group-consumer-review-10-5-2012, she tried to rectify the problem and have you remove it.

The concern that I have is that her factual statements are outright lies. She stated that she called the Attorney General’s Office of Florida and that they told her we had multiple complaints. This is 100% incorrect and here is the phone number for the Attorney General’s Office if you would like to verify that 1-866-966-7226. She also stated we are not licensed which is also incorrect.

In regards to our dealing with this woman, and the way we handled her case, that was totally incorrect, however, that would be a difference of opinion. But we would ask if you could remove the article, based on the fact of the outright lies about the Attorney General’s Office, which does hurt our company and it is a libelous action against us.

I would like to also draw your attention to an article that you posted (http://getoutofdebt.org/44377/tax-defense-network-consumertaxreports-org-warning). As you can see with our website and the article we forwarded to you, I have done everything in my power when I was with the IRS for 32 years to go after these illegitimate companies. And now being an owner of a Tax Resolution company, I have successfully gone after numerous companies, and I was instrumental in bringing down TaxMasters, and now heading toward Tax Defense Network for basically being a deceptive company just like TaxMasters.

I also helped startup an association called National Association of Tax Resolution Companies, which I am a chairman of and liaison to the IRS. I only point this out to you so that you can understand my background and that this malicious article does not deserve to be on your site because of its inaccuracy.

I would appreciate a response on what your position is on this.

    Today I received the Final
    Determination from my tax audit.  I want to thank JG Tax Group and your team Kelly and Jeff
    again for the work you did on my audit.  My returns were prepared
    (creatively) and when I got the audit notice I knew I was in trouble.  You
    guys did exactly what you said you could do and limited the penalties.  I
    realized I screwed up with the returns and will pay and IRS but you guys help a
    lot in limiting the damage.

  • Agremaux

    I am a little gun shy so to speak. We hired TaxsMasters to help us with our IRS issue. We got a Satisfaction Guarantee, so when I asked for our Money back because they didn’t do what they said they were going to do. They told me That the cost of investigating my case cost more that I paid so I don’t qualify for my refund. BS! I just want to know if JB Tax group is going to screw me before I hand over money for them to help me with my IRS problems.

    People should hire licensed CPA firms who are held to the highest fiduciary standards. The State Board is your highest level of consumer protection. No CPA firm will continue to exist with many internet complaints and lawsuits. Do Google searches and see for yourself!

    The charged me thousands, rush me to provide number (even advising me to make some of them up), claimed the IRS absolutely HAD to have information within days when that was not true–extensions can easily be obtained. Giant, giant scam of a company. Of course, as soon as you post anything negative about them they start responding, pointing to their BBB rating, posting their own glowing reviews to counter the truth that they’re a bunch of scammers out to collect as much money from you as quickly as they can.

    • Jeff Galante

      JG Tax Group is made up of a number of ex-irs agents, Tax Attorneys and CPAs with the highest ethical background.  For somebody to say that JG Tax Group told them to lie to the IRS is absurd.  So obviously this “William” is simply a competitor who probably has an F rating with the BBB that is on JG Tax Group’s website displaying their F rating.

        YAH RIGHT MR. JEFF GALANTE I GOT YOUR COMPANY ALL FIGURED OUT NOW you should be ASHAMED of yourself PREYING upon people that are in VUNARABLE situations with the IRS and SUCKING the lives out of their BANK ACCOUNTS. i am in NO way a “COMPETITOR” that you seem to always claim, I am a “CURRENT CUSTOMER” NOT FOR LONG CAUSE YOU ARE NOT GETTIING ANOTHER PENNY FROM ME, YOUR COMPANY TACTICS HAVE SICKENED ME, WATCH THE VIDEO OF TAXMASTERS ON ABC JG TAX GROUP WEBSITE, THE LADY THAT IS ON THE INTERVIEW IS EXACTLY WHAT I AM EXPERIENCING HERE… and when I asked to speak to YOU, THE OWNER of course you are invisible, left me no other recourse but to post on line what terrible LOURING LIES I have been SUCKED into.
