Irene started filing taxes when she was a teenager. She would go to neighbors, family and friends to help them prepare their tax returns.
Irene was inspired to continued this journey and earned a certificate in bookkeeping and business management.
She offered mobile bookkeeping services while studying to become a nail technician.
In 1980, Irene started her first business as a nail technician, nail technology instructor and opened a Nail Technology School in Nebraska.
Several years later she opened a Natural Hair and Nail Salon.
Irene and Vernon's love for children led them both to study Early Childhood Development. Together they opened a childcare facility for homeless families and later expanded to provide care for all families.
They also became foster parents for 11 years and cared for over 50 children throughout the years.
In 1999, Irene and Vernon started Small Business Services IVT LLC and later formed IT Tax and Business Solutions in the year 2012.
Now a family business, our programs and services have changed to meet the needs of individuals and small business owners nationwide.
The start of many other successful businesses continue to grow from this union of expertise.
