Meet Rebecca Kelly
Founder & Lead Accountant for Testu & Taylor
Rebecca’s roots in accounting and tax started in her high school and college years where she served as the tax accountant for her family’s business. She went on to the University of Georgia where she received her master’s in accountancy with a specialization in tax. In 1998, she started her career in tax consulting with a global accounting firm and spent the next 17 years providing tax planning and compliance services to public and privately-held clients. During that time, she was named the Atlanta mid-market tax practice leader. Through her experience, she has gained an understanding of the tax and accounting needs for privately-held businesses of all sizes.
She founded Testu & Taylor with a desire to lift the tax burdens of privately held businesses off their owners and help and minimize their tax liabilities. Knowing the struggles of her own family’s business and seeing others without the resources to resolve issues and plan appropriately fueled her passion for serving what she believes is the heart of America.
Today, Rebecca loves calling the Florida panhandle her home and feels blessed by how the local community has embraced her family in their recent move from Atlanta. Her biggest blessing in life is her family: husband Joe; daughters Elizabeth and Catherine and son Ian. She is an active member of Good News Methodist Church in Santa Rosa Beach. During the Fall she loves watching a good SEC football game and believes that ice cream is the greatest invention ever.
