When you look up the word "professional" in Webster's you will find Jason's picture. He is the consummate
professional who delivers his analyses and tax opinions in a very concise and understandable manner. Another section
of Webster's that you will find Jason is the word "dependable". Jason is always there to assist on a project
on a minutes' notice. When he says that the opinion or study will be done by a certain date you can be sure that it
will happen. Jason also has a natural talent in dealing with tax auditors. We had some very difficult issues to
present to IRS agents as well as the IRS National Office. Jason was able to present our position in a professional manner
and with terrific knowledge of the subject matter was able to get us excellent results. To top off Jason's accomplishments,
he is a great guy to boot. He always walks into a room with a big smile and reassures his clients that things will work
out for the best.

I have known Jason for years and he is great at what he does. My current company does not have the
traditional R&D type activity. We only have internally developed software which is the hardest area to document
and get qualified for and approved by the IRS. Jason was able to come in, interview people in various departments, obtain
the cost information, create the documents and put a presentation binder together to support for the deduction that was easy
to follow and understand. When we got audited I was able to just hand the documents over to the IRS with very little
commentary. The entire credit amount was accepted. Great job!!!

Geosyntec is an engineering and environmental consulting firm that prides
itself on providing innovative, high value solutions for our clients. As such, we believe a number of our activities
qualify for R&D credits, and Jason has been instrumental in documenting this for us.
We previously worked with
another consulting firm on our credits but switched to Jason in 2005 and have worked with him ever since. I have found
him very knowledgeable with regard to the credits and helpful in assisting us to maximize the potential benefits. This of course
has been welcomed by our corporate staff. However, the attribute that sets Jason apart is that he works exceptionally
well with our operations personnel. He has consistently been mindful of minimizing the demand on their time in quantifying
and appropriately supporting our credits which is appreciated by all.

As a small company, there has been a significant amount of
research done to attain the advanced technology in computer self-learning algroithms. Getting the R&D tax credits
in the early stages of the company has been a significant benefit in continuing the work. No research, no competitive
edge. No money, no research. Thanks Jason!

The primary purpose of
this letter is to recommend Jason Massie as a bright, honest and hardworking man of integrity. I have known Jason
and his family for many years. I have found Jason to be a man of refreshingly honest integrity and impeccable character.
When looking for a business partner, employee or friend you typically ask yourself three questions about them. Are they
someone I can trust? Are they committed to excellence? Do they care for and about others? For Jason Massie
I can say a resounding "Yes," for each of these metrics. He is not only someone I can trust but someone I have trusted
in many matters including the care and instruction of my children. I believe he is also bright and tenacious and will rise
to meet whatever challenge awaits him. Most importantly, I believe he has the proper perspective on priorities and what is
truly important. He genuinely cares about people and doing what is right. He cares about his family, co-workers, business
colleagues, neighbors and the community around him. I believe Jason will continue to triumph in whatever endeavor he
pursues. His character and attitude exemplify the right building blocks to engender success.

Norman, Director Global Technology, InterContinential Hotels Group
I have known Jason Massie for
nearly a decade. I've interacted with him on a personal level and once on a professional basis when I needed a referral.
Jason is a role model for many. He loves his family and shows it. He has or still does volunteer a great deal
of time with Lutheran Services of Georgia and he serves as a fellow Elder of our Church. He is a rare individual who
has a great mix of professional and personal accomplishments and a desire give back.
Lynn Thomsen, State Farm
My wife and I know Jason through our Church membership. We feel that he has exhibited
himself to be a man of God, who shows compassion for his fellow man both inside and outside the church community through his
church position and outside volunteer work. We are proud to know this man, as a fellow Christian and friend.
and Lisa Glynn, Cumming, GA
I have found Jason Massie to be a very honest and dedicated professional.
He can be trusted to deliver for his clients. Jason's subject matter expertise around R&D tax credits is also
something that is very unique. He puts a lot of emphasis on customer service because he knows how important it is to
exceed customer's expectations in today's economic environment. Moreover, flexibility is Jason's middle name so his
services/solutions are tailored for each of his clients. Lastly, I would trust Jason with my company's data and information
as he knows the importance of confidentiality for his clients (and their clients).
