WHY YOU CAN TRUST US
Gena's desire to maximize the dynamic duo of a CPA license and law degree by practicing Tax Law was very personal. Gena's father, Eugene Record, an accomplished songwriter, musician, and former lead singer of the Chi-Lites, faced tax problems that could have led to jail time. The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) was relentless and imposed unbelievable fear on her family. It was this experience coupled with Gena's opinion that the government should work with people not against people that propelled Gena to focus on Tax Controversy.
Gena left the entertainment world to focus on representing small business owners before the IRS, and to create a path of controversy avoidance for individuals and businesses. Gena's Tax Controversy experience revealed that controversies are only a symptom of a larger problem, which is the failure to plan.
Planning is the key to success in business and in life. Realizing that business owners just do not know where to start and who to call, Gena’s goal is to help businesses grow via proper planning, intentionality and thoughtful execution.
