Professional Experience:

Since 1988, Chip has specialized exclusively in multi-state tax consulting based out of Atlanta and previously New York City. Formerly, Chip was a state & local tax partner (participating principal) of Arthur Andersen’s national state tax restructuring practice and Deloitte’s multi-state tax practice. In 2004, he began his private multi-state and Georgia tax consulting practice as J. S. Peters Consulting LLC serving companies as well as accounting, tax and law firms that lack Chip's level of state tax expertise.

Practice Focus:

Chip has led numerous multi-state and Georgia tax projects for companies headquartered in several states and consistently delivers state tax value in the forms of cash refund claims, prospective annual savings, tax-efficient entity structure, effective tax rate decrease, earnings per share increase, tax exposure reduction, and tax asset identification & valuation support. State tax value is delivered via reviews of prior tax returns, credits, sales apportionment methodologies, sales & use taxability determinations, customized structural planning & implementation, nexus analysis, and audit defense & mitigation for state & local net income, sales & use, franchise, gross receipts and gross profit/margin taxes.

Chip holds a Master of Laws (LL.M.) in Taxation from New York University School of Law; Juris Doctor (J.D.) from Cumberland School of Law, Samford University; and Bachelor of Science in Business Administration from University of Tennessee. He has contributed articles to The Tax Executive, CCH State Tax Review, State Tax Notes, and Institute for Professionals in Taxation and has been a speaker for the Tax Executives Institute, Committee on State Taxation, Paul Hartman Forum, Interstate Tax Report, Institute of Management Accountants, Tax Update Conferences, and the Georgia & New York Societies of CPAs. Chip is a founding member of the ISA and served as President and on the Board of Directors during the early formative years of the ISA. His personal mission statement is to consistently exceed client expectations by delivering substantial state tax savings and exposure reduction through the highest quality analysis and documentation.
