Meet the Tax Time Team

Andrea Kennedy
   “Tax preparation is a lot like a puzzle.  I enjoy the challenge to do the best I can for the client and to try to get them with the least tax liability that falls within the rules and regulations of the IRS.”
   Co-Owner, Andrea Kennedy, began preparing taxes in 1985, just after her youngest daughter started school. She soon realized she enjoyed the work and, as her two children grew older, her tax work grew into a full-time career.
   In 1999, Andrea and retired co-Owner, Becky Portwood, launched Tax Time Income Tax Services, bringing with them more than three decades of combined tax consulting experience, and a desire to provide their clients with excellent, expert service, in a friendly and welcoming atmosphere. Andrea and her husband, Jerry, have two daughters and two grandchildren.

Dana Abernathy
   “The most interesting thing to me about tax preparation and accounting is being able to help people straighten out their stuff.  I like helping people keep from paying any taxes they don’t owe!” 
   Dana Abernathy came to Tax Time in January 2013.  Since his college days, Dana has done the taxes, bookkeeping, accounting and other financial aspects for himself, others and the two successful businesses he developed.  After he retired from his full-time career, Dana says he was getting restless at home, until Andrea and Becky invited him to add his more than four decades of experience to their organization.
   Dana and his wife, Joyce, have four children and five grandchildren.

Shay McDaniel
   “Doing taxes is a great fit for me. I love math, numbers and helping people. I’m excited to learn from Andrea and Dana. They have so much to offer!”   
   Tax Time’s newest tax professional, Shay McDaniel, is fresh out of tax school and is ready and excited to put her knowledge to work. After enjoying her time in the office for a year as an intern, Shay is already familiar with many of Tax Time’s clients and is looking forward to meeting many more.   
   Previously, Shay was a stay-at-home mom. She and her husband, Trey, have been married for 17 years and have three children – one in high school, one in middle school, and the youngest in elementary school.
